Katie Conway

Board representative
Worcestershire Health and Care Trust Youth Board representative

I’m currently in my third year studying Counselling Psychology at University. I have been involved with Worcestershire Health and Care Trust Youth Board for almost 5 years and have had some amazing opportunities including being part of the development of BESTIE since the beginning. These opportunities have allowed me to help give a voice to younger people who may not have felt they were being heard and developed younger people’s services based on their feedback. I’ve had past experience using the mental health service and it has helped give me an insight into how younger people may be feeling going through these services and so has put me in a unique position in helping to develop them.
