IMHN’s Team

The Independent Mental Health Network, as a charitably-incorporated organisation, is overseen by a Board of Trustees; and supported by a core staff team.

Members of Staff

Tom Renhard – Chief Executive Officer

Tom was part of the inception of the Bristol Independent Mental Health Network in 2014, and has driven the growth of the organisation to IMHN’s current structure and expansion to further branches, projects, and campaigns.

With a strong background in student campaigning, wellbeing, and public issues, Tom continues to manage IMHN as it continues to grow; whilst maintaining the core ethos that by working together, we can achieve positive and worthwhile change locally and nationally.
