Alistair Reid – Chair
Having just moved to Mid Wales I became a Director 3 years ago and I am currently the Chair of Mid and North Powys Mind.
My main professional background is within film production and was an owner of a small production company. I also extensively taught Film / Video production at many Universities and Tertiary Colleges.
Having personal experience of mental health issues I wanted to help the organisation to both develop and enhance the vital services it provides, and to ensure a strong, responsive and progressive future for all who are within the Mid and North Powys Mind’s community.
I joined Mid and North Powys Mind as a member in 2014 when I needed support whilst experiencing trauma and depression.
I come from a health and social care background and enjoy being a Director of Mid and North Powys Mind as we are very community focused and I think, an important asset to Llandrindod Wells.
I love animals, nature, current affairs and sci-fi and live in a very remote Welsh valley.
I started attending a Mid and North Powys Mind Outreach group many years ago. It helped me tremendously with my mental health. I became a volunteer and I still am.
I enjoy baking cakes and making preserves. I have recommended the services of Mind to many people in the past and continue to do so. It is an amazing organisation that I am proud to be part of.
