As regular blog readers will know, every few months we like to tell you more about members of our team, this time it’s the turn of our newest staff member Amareen, our Wellbeing Space and Support Service Worker.
What does your role involve?
My role involves engaging with the communities of South and East Leeds to facilitate the reduction of stigma around, and positive conversations about, mental health and self-care, and to set up groups and activities in these areas that encourage and support connectedness and wellbeing.
What’s your favourite thing about WHM?
The staff – everyone is so warm, welcoming and dedicated – a real pleasure and privilege to work with and be around.
What are 3 things you enjoy doing?
Reading, running, yoga.
If you had a magic wand, what would you do with it?
So much! I would eradicate white supremacist colonialist heteronormative patriarchal capitalism and its modes of relating (which are driving us to extinction!), and build a world that values and nurtures a flourishing and love of life, encouraging healing, growth and creativity.
