Positive psychology expert; mental health ambassador; mother; teacher;

I am a new mother coming to the end of my maternity leave. Whilst off work, I have been studying for an MSc in Applied Positive Psychology and eating a lot of cake! I will be resuming my role as a secondary school teacher in September. My interest in mental health stems from my own experience of depression and anxiety. I largely dealt with these problems using positive psychology interventions; therefore, I am keen to share this knowledge with the teenagers I teach, as well as the wider public.
