Team Mental Health was founded by two medical doctors who specialised to become consultant psychiatrists and 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 the way we perceive and manage mental health could impact on the ability of a person to realise and achieve their potential.
We realised that for real differences to be made, expert led support to inform and empower 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!
To put mental health on a par with physical health. Prevention is better than cure!
To drive change so we can move away from reactive, crisis intervention and move towards proactive, preventative action.
To support mentally healthy children & young people in education transition into mentally healthy workplaces.
To make a real and positive difference across our communities and not be a 'tick box' exercise.
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.
