Janice Clark

It is with great sadness that I report the tragic and untimely death of Janice Clark.

As a governor, expert by experience and, latterly, a peer trainer, Janice will be remembered for her positive contributions to the recovery and harm minimisation projects within the Trust and, more widely, to tackling stigma and discrimination. 

Through her work, Janice’s approach reflected her genuine passion and commitment for improving mental health services and people’s lives in general.  

I know that many service users and staff counted Janice as a personal friend, valuing her as an inspiration in both their personal and professional lives. 

Her sudden and unexpected death has left a profound sense of loss. Grieving is a natural process but I would encourage anyone distressed by Janice’s passing to seek the support that works for them – that could be family and friends, voluntary organisations or professional support from the Trust. 

Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this difficult time.
