ABOUT INSIDE OUT UK
We are Inside Out UK. A not-for-profit social enterprise committed to helping people improve their mental health and wellbeing.
We are on a mission to help young people reduce their risk of developing mental health disorders through our prevention and early interventions approach. Using psycho-education and creativity, we educate, engage and entertain.
We believe everyone should have access to mental health education and should be able to find solutions to manage and optimise their mental health, no matter what stage of the journey they are at.
FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Vanessa graduated in 2016 with a first class degree in psychology. Her interests in the human mind and behaviour, as well as her personal and professional experiences of mental health challenges led her to pursue a career in Psychological Therapies.
She currently works in mental health with a range of people, including those who have been diagnosed with severe mental disorders. This in particular, triggered her to do more to increase mental health awareness.
Vanessa is also a creative writer and has had experience in acting and directing stage plays. She has previously written and featured in productions for local audiences in the UK.
As a creative and an advocate for mental health, she decided to merge her two platforms together to establish the organisation Inside Out UK, which combines psychoeducation with creativity to increase mental health awareness and aims to help people reduce their risk of developing severe mental health disorders.
