ISPS UK is looking for a new Chair

Are you someone who can lead a small charitable organisation to achieve big goals?

Do you have outstanding leadership skills and the ability to motivate those around you?

Are you passionate about promoting social and psychological approaches to psychosis to diverse stakeholders?

A note from Akiko Hart, current Chair of ISPS UK

We’re looking for a new Chair of Trustees who shares our values and can provide leadership and direction to help us grow our membership, and promote psychological and social approaches to what gets called psychosis. It’s a really exciting time to join. The Committee is in a really good place, and there is a lot of energy and passion, with a brilliant mix of skills, networks and experience. Catherine, our Administrator, is central to all of this: working alongside her has been such a joy. As you’ll know if you have experience of micro-charities, you need passion and enthusiasm, but this needs to be underpinned by respect and thoughtfulness, and held together by good governance and administration. I feel like this is what we have at ISPS UK, and it’s a really solid foundation to build on. 

I think this is a wonderful opportunity for someone who is values-driven, and who is interested in leading and growing a small charity with a unique position and mission in mental health. I’ve really enjoyed my time chairing ISPS UK. I’m really grateful for everything it has given me, especially the friendships which will continue beyond my time at ISPS.

If you have any questions about the role or the commitment, you can email me at

Warm wishes,
