An announcement from our board of trustees

The Board of United for Global Mental Health is delighted to announce the appointment of two new trustees – Enochi Li and Peter Yaro.

Enoch Li has advocated on mental health for over a decade, and will offer particular insights to the Board from the perspective of people with lived experience of mental health conditions. She has a background in international criminal and humanitarian law, as well as extensive corporate management and leadership experience. In particular she is Founder and Managing Director of a social enterprise, Bearapy, now an award-winning consulting and training company for workplace mental health, and a forerunner in the space.

Peter has over two decades of experience working in Ghana, gaining substantial Africa-wide and international experience through his work in mental health and development. In particular he has worked with and led BasicNeeds-Ghana, a pioneer and leading mental health and development advocacy organisation in Ghana, that has substantially contributed to mental health policy and services in Ghana and the West Africa sub-region. Peter will play a crucial role on the Board in providing insights from the perspective of people working on mental health in Low and Middle Income Countries.

Sarah Kline, Co-Founder and CEO of UnitedGMH said:

“I am delighted the Board of Trustees has appointed Enoch and Peter as Trustees. They bring a wealth of experience which will help strengthen the knowledge and insights that inform the approach of UnitedGMH and ensure we work as closely as possible with those we ultimately exist to serve.

Congratulations and welcome to both Enoch and Peter, and we look forward to working together to deliver our 3-year strategy.”
