Our Team

We are mental resilience nerds with sharp minds and ninja facilitation skills.

Specialising in prevention and mental resilience, Michael co-created the UK’s biggest peer-led mental resilience programme, established the Employer Champions professional network for the ‘Time to Change’ national mental health campaign and was a co-designer of Mind’s ‘Whole School Approach’ (WSA) National Mental Health Strategy for England & Wales.

Our Trainers

Handpicked by Michael for their unusual backgrounds and novel training styles, our Mixed Mental Arts trainers are trailblazers in personal & group transformation.

They each have lived experience of recovering from mental health problems and are able to speak from this experience.
