Nicole Bell is Support in Mind Scotland’s Young Trustee. She has worked and volunteered in various capacities for a number of non-profit organisations concerned with mental, physical and social health and holds an MA (Hons) in Psychology. She is particularly passionate about the link between mental and physical health – and achieving parity of esteem between the two.

Nicole is also keen to ensure that the voices of carers of those affected by mental illness – whether that be young people or adults – are represented and recognised. In her leisure time, Nicole enjoys walking, arts festivals and exhibiting at cat shows.
