Mental health – good or bad, we all have it.
But our lived experience, plus research with universities, the NHS, Imperial College London, service users and scientists shows people don’t feel they have the support they need.
This was certainly the case for our Founder and CEO Phil Bridges whose difficulty in finding support for his anxiety, depression and OCD led him to want to set up the very site you are browsing.
We are an innovative mental health organisation, navigating individuals and organisations to better mental health through counselling, journalism, signposting and Mental Health First Aid Training.
We are currently working with a range of organisations to support their staff and student’s mental health. From designing this bespoke website for the University of Liverpool, to training hundreds of staff across the UK to be Mental Health First Aiders. Happy clients include Go Cardless, the NHS and Freuds.
By aligning action with awareness, we are promoting a New Normal where people can talk openly about their emotions, as comfortably as they’d talk about last night’s game or the latest TV series. Our team is made up of industry leading mental health researchers, BACP counsellors and psychotherapists, journalists and Mental Health First Aid instructors.
We recycle the economy by reinvesting our profits back into our community, supporting those who have the most need and making therapy available to anyone regardless of circumstances.
Our innovative approach to easing access to mental health support is informed by our team’s lived experience and a three-year research project.
Read all about the research study we did here with students at Liverpool John Moores University to gain their insights n current mental health provisions.
To also help us uncover the mental health needs of young people we run workshops at organisations including the NHS, Merseyside Youth Association, Edge Hill University and the National Citizens Service. Out of that was born our ‘World of Wellbeing’ concept. A holistic approach where in our resources section exercise, nutrition, employment and money support is provided alongside a map with all the free mental health services in your locality.
