Marie Boardman is a Senior Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner with Mental Health Matters, which is partnered with Midlands Partnership Foundation Trust to provide IAPT services in South Staffordshire. She spent 20 years employed by a housing association within Care and Support services. She later set up a pilot programme at Sandwell to help hard-to-reach groups access primary care mental health services. This led to her following a career in IAPT – training with Wolverhampton Healthy Minds before moving to Birmingham Healthy Minds. In her present role Marie has been instrumental in developing community engagement initiatives and developing the West Midlands Senior PWP Forum.
