Jacqui is an independent health and social care consultant, who was an integral part of collaboratively developing the Five-Year Forward View for Mental Health.
“Over a year ago I received a letter from Oprah Winfrey asking me to be on the international advisory panel for the Apple TV series The Me You Can’t See. At first, I thought it was a scam! How could Oprah have been writing to me!
It has truly been a privilege and a joy to be part of this excellent series looking at the global experience of mental health, hosted by Oprah herself and Prince Harry. They talk about their own very human, intimate and authentic experiences alongside those of ordinary people from around the world.”
– Dr Jacqui Dyer MBE
