Sara Muzira - Public Governor, Suffolk
Term of office started 1 February 2019
I aim to help the Trust provide an excellent service for everyone who needs it.
As a carer, I have experience of acute inpatient facilities and community care. This has given me a good understanding of the pressures on mental health services. I also understand the difference that good care and compassionate staff can make to a person’s life.
Over the last three years, I have attended committees at the Royal College of Psychiatrists as a carer representative. This gave me an insight into current challenges and opportunities in mental health.
I have volunteered at Citizens Advice and now work part-time with them. It has given me an insight into the impact that practical difficulties in life can have on a person’s wellbeing. I also know how much people can gain from impartial help with issues such as debt and benefits.
As an artist, I’m passionate about the potential of the arts and creativity to contribute to mental health and recovery.
