Some news on just one of the names featured in my previous post – Miss Amelia Mustapha.
This short biography is from the Breaking through Barriers website – it seems Amelia Mustapha is on their editorial board:
Amelia Mustapha – Vice President of the European Depression Association, Communications Director of the UK Centre for Mental Health
Amelia Mustapha is Vice President of the European Depression Association and Communications Director of the UK’s Centre for Mental Health. Amelia was previously Fundraising, Marketing and Communications Director of the Depression Alliance, the leading UK Charity for people affected by depression.
Amelia is a keen campaigner and patient advocate. She coordinated the UK’s National Depression Week campaign for five years and managed the secretariat function for the UK All Party Parliamentary Group on Depression. Amelia has written over 20 publications on depression for the general public and recently sat on the UK National Institute for Clinical Excellence ‘Depression in Children Clinical Guideline’ group.
That’s a great sounding biography – the Depression Alliance link is there again… and even more impressive, Amelia “managed the secretariat function for the UK All Party Parliamentary Group on Depression”
It must have been an easy job that one – the All Party Group never got off the ground – it never got registered – never did any business… in fact the only place it was ever mentioned was on the Depression Alliance website – until the Charities Commission made them remove mention of it as being misleading.
But missing from that biography is another organisation that Amelia works for – the healthwell.org.
I’d really like to know who funds the healthwell and the Centre for Mental Health.
