Hello! I am Georgina, CHC’s new Public Affairs Assistant. I will be supporting Aaron, the Assistant Director of Policy and Public Affairs, with (among other things) political monitoring, organising events and research.
For eight years Mark Davies lived in secure psychiatric hospitals in Newport and Abergavenny. The 43 year old has mental health illnesses impacting how he sees the world, his ability to communicate and form relationships. Struggling to make eye contact and conversations without becoming distressed, Mark, who is from Brynmawr, turned to substance abuse to help manage his emotions and behaviour. He became isolated from his family, subsequently affecting his parents’ mental health.
