Our Team

Voices of Experience was established as an organisation in December 2006

Vox Scotland is run day-to-day by our small and friendly team, based in Glasgow. They are always keen to hear from our members, so get in touch if you have any questions, thoughts or suggestion!

Natalie Stevenson (Manager)
Paula Fraser (Development Officer)

I am committed to pushing for positive action and change that people with living and lived experience of mental health problems need, want, and deserve. So, I’m here, and I’m listening! I’m asking questions, and I’m gathering people’s views on issues that matter and represent those as effectively as possible to the people who can take action.

Getting outside, no matter what the weather is, is really important for me and, luckily, I have children who agree! So, muddy puddle walks, cycling by the river, and attempts at (junior!) archery in the garden are good for us! I love trips to the beach, visiting castles, having fun with friends and family. I like reading, eating chocolate, watching films (which I forget the plot of very soon afterward, so it’s like the first time every time!) and singing/dancing along to music while I hang up the washing, do the dishes, and cook the dinner! (Yes, at the same time 😀)

John Steel (Administration Officer)

John has experience as a mental health service user since 1991 and has been a supporter of the Clubhouse movement since joining Scotia Clubhouse in Glasgow in 2001.
John has attended many Clubhouse conferences in Europe and the United States and spoke at a fundraising event at the UN in New York. He was also a Faculty Member of the International Centre for Clubhouse Development and, by being involved in the Clubhouse movement, has acquired many additional skills which he uses in his work with VOX.

As VOX’s Administration Officer, John looks after the VOX website and issues a weekly update for individual, group and associate members. John also looks after the day to day running of the VOX office and organises major VOX events such as the Annual Conference and Annual Members’ Meeting.

VOX Scotland is a national membership organisation, open to all people in Scotland with lived experience of mental health difficulties. We represent the views of our 500+ individual, group, and associate members to politicians and health professionals – making sure that Scotland’s laws and mental health services reflect their needs and interests.
