Kate Morton


After graduating with a master’s in Clinical Psychology, Kate worked in housing, health and social care and was a senior leader in the Charity sector for 11 years before moving to Bath in 2005 with her young family. Diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2008, Kate made the decision to volunteer for a local mental health charity as part of her recovery.  Kate joined Bath Mind’s Board of Trustees in 2011, and oversaw the organisation’s Advocacy service in 2012. Kate became CEO of Bath Mind in 2015.

Kate says, “I love working for Bath Mind and with my amazing colleagues.  I love the fact we all have the same passion and drive to provide the best support and advice we can for people experiencing mental ill health.  It is an exciting and challenging role and no one day is the same. It certainly keeps me on my toes!”
