Our mission is to educate young people and those with responsibility for them - so parents and carers, teachers, college and university staff, employers, GPs and Practice Nurses - about their mental health and wellbeing.

Whether within our head office, or as part of our network of trainers, or as a volunteer, there may be opportunities for you join our team.
