I have a passion for helping people understand their own mental health and wellbeing, and I have dedicated a lot of my time studying these areas. After finishing my undergraduate degree in Forensic Psychology, I started to work in a school with students who had a diagnosis of autism. Whilst in this job role, I progressed as part of the wellbeing team, which meant my job was to plan lessons to educate the students about their own emotional wellbeing. I also had the responsibility of helping any students who were struggling at the time with their mental health.
This was such a rewarding job, that it really sparked my interest in the field. I then set up my own social media pages to help normalise mental health conversations. I went on to complete my masters in positive psychology and wellbeing. After finishing the course, I became a Mad Millennials Mentor for the peer support groups that will be facilitated all over the UK and one even in Barcelona!
These sessions are to focus on helping people understand their mental health and wellbeing better in a peer support environment for people facing millennial issues (such as social media, career demands, work/life balance, loneliness and so much more!) Our peer support groups start in December online due to current circumstances with the intention to be face-to-face once safe to do so! After becoming a mentor, I became part of the leadership team at Mad Millennials and started to help with the everyday running of the non-profit organisation.
