AcSEED Leadership Team
Charlotte is the creator and founder of The AcSEED Initiative. Having discovered that her school had litte formal support for students suffering with emotional and/or mental health difficulties, her investigation of other schools indicated wide variability in the scope and quality of mental health and wellbeing support. Through her volunteering work with numerous mental health charities she discoved that the lack of high quality wellbeing support in schools and colleges was adversely affecting many young people across the UK, and she was determined to improve the situation for both current and future students.
Recognising that young people spend a significant proportion of their time at school, and that many consider it as a safe space, she identified this as a good environment for building strong emotional health and resilience. With dependable support provisions in school there would also be an increased likelihood of young people asking for help sooner thus enabling the opportunity for early intervention to prevent mental health problems from escalating.
Charlotte has an honours degree in psychology from The Open University, has volunteering experience with numerous mental health charities, and has had professional roles in mental health care most recently as an assistant psychologist.
