Sue Willgoss - Service User Governor, Suffolk

Sue Willgoss Term of office started 1 February 2022  

I live in Lowestoft in the Waveney area of Suffolk. I’m mum to four wonderful neurodiverse men. Sadly, one of those, Daniel, is no longer with us after taking his own life at 25 in 2018.

I promised Daniel the night he died that something positive must come from our loss and that things must change. That promise is my drive and determination to push for change and improvements.

I have my own lived experience of mental health difficulties and been a carer for many years. I now work for NSFT as Advisor for Suicide Prevention with Lived Experience. I also have other roles within the community:

  • Lived Experience Influencer for the National Suicide Prevention Alliance
  • Founder of #LiftLoudForDanny
  • Expert by Experience and Chair of Suffolk Parent Carer Forum

I have a very keen interest in young people's mental health, Special Educational Needs, autism and suicide prevention. I work locally, regionally and nationally in these areas.
