Liz Felton, Chief Executive of Together For Mental Wellbeing, is stepping down from her role at the end of March 2018, after 11 highly successful years.
Liz has been Together’s Chief Executive since 2006, and during that time has provided clear and thoughtful leadership to our organisation – particularly through a tough landscape for the mental health and charity sectors that continues today.
Under Liz’s leadership over the years, Together has successfully launched multiple new services across England; won numerous awards for our pioneering work; and, most importantly of all, helped support tens of thousands of people experiencing mental health issues to lead more fulfilling and independent lives.
Throughout her time at the helm of Together, Liz has been a proud champion of service user involvement and leadership. Her dedication in this area will help ensure that supporting people experiencing mental distress to direct their own journeys towards improved mental health remains a core ethos of Together’s work in the years to come.
Liz has done all of this with integrity and compassion – and for this she will be greatly missed.
Together’s Board of Trustees are now working to ensure a smooth transition for our organisation, service users, staff, volunteers and stakeholders whilst we proceed with interim arrangements and appoint a new, permanent Chief Executive.
We are greatly looking forward to helping our new Chief Executive build on Liz’s impressive legacy and help take Together onto the next exciting stage of our growth and success.
I have had the pleasure of working with Liz since joining the organisation myself last year, and would like to put on record my own thanks for the welcome she has given me as the new Chair and for her leadership during her tenure as Chief Executive.
I’m sure you will join me in congratulating Liz on all her many achievements during her time with Together, and in wishing her all the very best for the future.
