Stephen finds that keeping busy helps him to keep mentally healthy, and he does this in a number of ways, particularly with Art and Photography (some of which is displayed at Vital Offices). Thankfully for Vital, part of keeping busy means volunteering his time for the organisation!

Stephen has been with Vital from the very early days and is passionate about the work VITAL does, continuing with the business of helping people like him to survive an ever more complicated care system. He is eager for VITAL to move with the needs of the environment and the people it serves, particularly those experiencing mental ill health for the first time.

What you should know about Stephen, is that he is always thinking of others, and will be the first to try and solve a problem. Staff at VITAL find themselves in many a food fight over his allotment produce.
