Biographical Info

Wish is a unique charity that works with women in secure hospitals and prisons throughout England and Wales. It is the only organisation to provide independent advocacy and emotional support at all stages of a woman’s journey through the mental health system.  We reach out to those deemed at risk of entering secure settings, seek to improve the quality of care for women already detained, and maintain our support after their release or discharge. Wish is a user led, membership organisation which is run by women with experience of mental distress and the mental health system.  This applies to over half of Wish’s Board of Directors, as well as to many of our paid staff members and volunteers.
