Greg May - Chair of the board news

Change Mental Health is advancing into its next era of transformation and growth with Greg May taking over as Chair of the Board of Trustees.

Greg has been Vice Chair of Change Mental Health and will replace Max Ahmed at the helm. Max will remain on the Board of Trustees at the mental health charity after stepping down with new personal commitments on the horizon.

Greg started his journey at Change Mental Health as a volunteer delivering team building work. He joined the Board shortly after being amazed of the charity’s work.

Greg’s professional background in Leadership Development and Coaching has been useful during his two and a half years’ experience on the Board, in addition to personal experience of mental health and looking after his son with Down syndrome.

After working in the NHS for 20 years, including five years at a psychiatric hospital, as well as being an English teacher in Sudan, Greg has a variety of experience and expertise that makes him invaluable to the charity moving forward.

“I recognise that any one of us can experience mental health difficulties or indeed mental health challenges and how absolutely essential it is to get the right support, at the right time. Change Mental Health is at the forefront of providing this essential support and I cannot wait to work with our great staff, members and people we support to continue to deliver and enhance the great work that we do.” –  said Greg May, Chair of Change Mental Health.

Max Ahmed had been Chair of the Board since January 2019 and oversaw a period of development and growth at Change Mental Health, while offering leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Nick Ward, CEO at Change Mental Health, said:

“Max’s time and commitment to Change Mental Health has been immense, and we thank him so much for the commitment, energy and passion towards the charity.

“We are thrilled to have Greg as Chair of the Board of Change Mental Health, which makes such an impact to so many people’s lives everyday and is going through an exciting time of transformation and growth.”
