Design, Informatics, Evaluation and Strategic Engagement Lead (DIESEL), City and Hackney Psychological Therapies & Wellbeing Alliance

Breda is the Design, Informatics, Evaluation and Strategic Engagement Lead for the Psychological Therapies and Wellbeing Alliance in City and Hackney, and has been since the Alliance was set up by the City and Hackney CCG in 2015.

A qualified architect, Breda moved to health and social care in 2009, working in support services in Hackney for a number of years while completing a Masters in Ageing and Society before setting up a service for people who hoard in Hackney in 2013.

Since joining the Psychological Therapies and Wellbeing Alliance, she has  led on the delivery of a wide range of mental health innovations across NHS and Voluntary Sector providers. She approaches service design in the same way as building design – once you understand the needs and desires of the users of the service, then the construction is easy, so the most important thing you can do is speak to people, really listen to what is being said, and work together.
