Janine Ward

Managing Director of Together We CIC and Lead Coordinator for The North Cumbria Recovery College

I am one of the Managing Directors at Together We and a Mental Health and Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner as well as a lived experience peer. I have worked delivering evidence-based mental health interventions for 18 years to a range of groups and have experienced severe periods of mental health illness throughout my life at times requiring hospitalisation.  I am highly motivated in helping other people take control over their physical and mental health and strive to help others look at mental illness instead as recovery and fostering positive skills to improve their quality of life. I am keen on promoting self management and enjoy working alongside individuals to achieve this.
