Additional information

Graham McKnight is a Macmillan Cancer Support Worker and Trust Ambassador for University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust. He is studying part-time for a Masters degree in Psychology and is a Mental Health First Aider.


Graham has an educational background in the Humanities and has worked in the fields of education and health & social care since graduating from the University of Brighton with a degree in Cultural & Historical Studies. A lifelong learner, Graham earned a postgraduate qualification in Education at the University of Chichester, and has been a Visiting Lecturer in Mental Health at the University of Sussex.


Open and honest about living with Bipolar Disorder, Graham helps to challenge the stigma that many people who endure poor mental health conditions experience in their everyday lives as he believes that this can increase likelihoods of making recoveries that benefit not just those of us who have or had poor mental health but also wider society.


In both of his current capacities as an NHS worker and County Councillor, Graham very much enjoys undertaking casework on behalf of people who require his assistance, and describes his election to West Sussex County Council as a great honour.


Graham writes in his spare time and often composes letters, allegories, and other forms of literature for professional, public interest, and holistic purposes.


Born in Scotland and raised in England, Graham is British, has lived along the South Coast for most of his life, and is glad to have friends, colleagues, and acquaintances from all over our world.
