Lisa lives and works in the Lothians and was appointed as a charity trustee in 2017. She has worked at the Scottish Centre for Social Research (ScotCen) for 15 years.

ScotCen is an educational charity dedicated to giving the public a powerful role in shaping decisions and services that make a difference to everyone.

For several years she ran the Scottish Government’s Scottish Health Survey - a barometer of the nation’s health, including measuring progress towards the Scottish Government’s National Indicator on improving the nation’s mental wellbeing. Consequently, Lisa is a strong advocate of evidence based policy making in the mental health sphere. Lisa says: “For me, what makes Support In Mind so invaluable is that it puts people with mental health problems and their families, friends and carers at the heart of everything they do.”
