Christine’s career journey began with working with people with learning disabilities at a social club and consequently choosing to gain a professional qualification as a social worker. Her passion for mental health was ignited from being a student with a multidisciplinary community mental health team, where Christine became a team member. The range of other roles, such as a volunteer, facilitator, practitioner, assessor, co-ordinator and trustee have developed her knowledge and skills in the social care and health and community development sector.
Due to Christine’s practice experience she can apply this to the modules, which she leads or as part of the teaching team. Core areas – working with people; mental health, working in organisations, workplace culture, social justice and academic/professional skills.
