Meet our Community Correspondents: Maureen Gilmour


Where are you from/ where do you live?

My name is Maureen Gilmour and I live in Glasgow.

Why are you interested in wellbeing?

My interest in mental well being began in 1982 when I started nursing college. I worked in the mental health field for 34 years until my early retirement in 2016.

I have suffered from poor mental health for a number of years and am now on the road to recovery.

What can we expect from you?

I hope to contribute to Mind Waves blogs bringing a unique perspective from “both sides of the fence” so to speak.

What makes you angry?

Ignorance of mental well being and stigma are my pet hates alongside liars and thieves. I get angered easily by people who disrespect your need to be understood and who are dismissive of others who need time and patience when speaking.

What makes you feel good?

Spending time with my close friends and family make me feel good….and my dogs, Buster and Macie.
