Team Mental Health was founded by three professionals who have worked as a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist, consultant forensic psychiatrist and an experienced headteacher who is the chief executive officer of a multi-academy trust.
As friends with significant collective experience of working with children, young people and adults experiencing mental health problems, we became acutely aware of how limitations in support for mental health and wellbeing could impact on the ability of a person to achieve their potential.
We realised that for real differences to be made, expert led support at the frontlines of our communities was essential.
We collaboratively reflected on our knowledge and experience and considered carefully how these could best be combined to develop an accessible, meaningful and empowering intervention. The outcome was Team Mental Health!
- We all have mental health and it’s important we all know how to look after it and protect it.
- Prevention, detection and early intervention are key!
- Through increasing awareness and understanding we can empower communities to thrive.
