Film: “I really enjoy learning about people’s stories”

Deborah Waller was working in science communication when she heard about the Think Ahead programme. She graduated from UCL in 2011 with a degree in Human Science, but last year decided to look into changing career.

Deborah said: “My focus was brought to mental health whenever it came up so I thought, this is something I really care about, maybe I should pursue a career in this.”

Deborah is one of the 96 participants who joined Think Ahead in 2016, and is now learning on-the-job in a community mental health team in Hertfordshire.

In this video, Deborah talks more about why she wants to become a mental health social worker.
