Kimberley came to speak at one of our NIPS Mental Health & Children seminars at Leeds City Museum. She was chatty, confident and passionate about mental health in Yorkshire. She was great with the audience and sharing her story- really glad she was involved!

I would thoroughly recommend Kimberley, she provides fantastic content in a human and engaging way.
