My Name is Helen Duncan and I have worked in the field of Mental Health for 29 years and currently hold the position of Chief Officer at Town Break. I joined Town Break as Service Manager in September 2021 and later assumed the role of Chief Officer in May 2022.
Prior to my CO role with Town Break, I worked with the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) where I managed a range of services across the central belt including Care Homes, Short term recovery and outreach services.
As CEO of Town Break, my responsibilities include overseeing the efficient functioning of the charity, establishing new partnerships, collaborating with local agencies (both statutory and voluntary), and managing various positions within the organisation.
My primary objective is to propel the charity forward while preserving its original mission and values.
