Melissa Townsend

Melissa Townsend

Melissa joined Mid and North Powys Mind’s board in 2022. She has worked in the third sector for the last ten years supporting organisations and individuals with governance, volunteering, mental health participation and digital skills. She volunteers on the board because mental health affects everyone and is such a vital service, particularly in rural communities. Melissa also wanted to share her knowledge of good governance and good practice in volunteering with the board.

Melissa has volunteered in a variety of roles supporting individuals to have a voice and empowering them. This initially started with supporting children in care after her own experiences.  It is vital to ensure everyone has a voice and access to the support they need, which is something Mid and North Powys Mind champions with every individual the organisation helps.   

Director - Jeremy Andrews

Jeremy Andrews

I come from a technical background and am a bit of a geek and enjoy playing games in my spare time. I was diagnosed as being on the Autistic Spectrum as an adult and believe that this allows me to view situations in a different way.

Throughout my life I have had family members and friends with mental health issues and I have tried to be there for them when they need it. I believe that all of us should have access to the support we need and know that there is always someone who is there for them.

My values include fairness, balance and inclusivity.

Noreen O’Connor

Noreen joined the Board in January 2024. She has a predominantly health background in nursing, in the latter years she has been a Safeguarding Adults lead in Social Services.
She believes everyone at some time in their life has mental health issues and all should be able to access support if they need it regardless. The work of MIND supports this belief and she looks forward to being an active member of the Board.
