Hi! My name is Aimee, I’m 28, and I live in Northumberland.

I joined LEAPS in April 2017 as an Advertising Assistant and have since been voted in as Chair and Advertising Manager. 
I have run the mental health blog I’m NOT Disordered ( for seven years. In building the blog to what it is today (over half a million readers!) I’ve learnt a lot about social media, advertising, publicity, marketing, and communications and I’m thoroughly enjoying my first job in that industry here at LEAPS. 
The group is like a little family and they really have been instrumental in my mental health recovery and career. I started this website in late 2017 and have designed business cards, posters, applied for funding, organized fundraising events, and set up the LEAPS Twitter account:

Secretary: Craig

Craig has been Secretary for LEAPS since 2010, after having a back ground in Administration as an assistant and has have been doing this intermittently since he was at school. In Craig’s spare time he likes to play darts on a Tuesday night and enjoys seventies and eighties music. Craig is particularly interested in Japanese culture and is in the process of doing his thesis on Japanese. He has also previously played for the Northern League club. Craig is currently unemployed like many LEAPS members.

Treasurer: Paul

Hi, my name is Paul and I am privileged to be the treasurer of the support group LEAPS. The group has evolved since being founded in 2009, but our basic principles of helping and supporting other remains the same. Personally, I have met some great people through the group which I class as my friends.

LEAPS has had its highs and lows over the years, but we’ve kept in going! I feel it is now on a strong and stable foundation and will continue to grow and evolve.
