With over 15 years of mentoring experience, Rashid Nix has worked with some of the most challenging young people in London. A graduate of South Bank University and a background in broadcasting, film making and politics, he is particularly interested in how media influences behaviour and consumption habits of different social groups. He is now a member of SLaM and part of their MASADA BME Be-frienders programme working with service users in secure units. It was here he developed his groundbreaking Black History as Therapeutic Practice model. Father of four, music lover and eternal optimist.
Margery works as a child and adolescent counsellor and psychotherapist in the state sector and in private practice as psychoanalytic psychotherapist working with adults and young people.

She is also currently the service manager for a charity which provides creative therapy services in schools and colleges in East London.
The changes to how we live, work and even simply interact has impacted so many people's mental health, including my own. Lived experience of mental health issues coupled with supporting friends has changed me deeply. I have been a resident of Southwark for more than 15 years and giving back to my local community has always been important to me. Prior to joining Lambeth and Southwark Mind, I was a trustee for 6 years for Link Age Southwark. I currently work as a governance professional and am a graduate member of the Chartered Governance Institute.
I’ve lived in the local area for the past three decades. I’m proud to be a trustee of Lambeth and Southwark Mind and the vital role it plays in promoting good mental health in our communities - both through the work it does for individual and groups, and its advocacy of better policies on mental health particularly for diverse communities such as ours. I bring to the Board my experience as a Chief Executive of a number of small charities, as well as having been a trustee before. I’m a qualified counsellor, and I volunteer locally to provide low-cost counselling for people on restricted incomes. Having benefited from counselling myself, I know first-hand the help it can bring.
