Sarah Merrington

Head of Mental Health at Work Programme, Mind
Sarah is an experienced senior manager, developing strategies and programmes with a specialism for behaviour change, whether volunteering, environmental behaviours, or improving community health and wellbeing. With an MSc in Nutrition, Physical Activity and Public Health, Sarah's passion is supporting others to have the knowledge, skills and opportunity to live healthily. She has worked in roles supporting communities to be more physically active, starting her career in higher education supporting students and staff. She eventually moved over into the voluntary sector where she has spent the last 12 years working for organisations such as Cycling UK, WWF and Mind. Sarah's current role as Head of Mental Health at Work Programme at Mind sees her leading on a UK-wide programme that aims to demystify mental health in the workplace through support for employers to improve their working policies, practices and culture, build mental health literacy and reduce mental health stigma in the workplace. In her spare time, Sarah enjoys spending time outside on the Kent coast where she lives, singing in local choirs and fostering cats for the RSPCA.
