“After working in numerous schools supporting learning through technology, I am really excited to be involved with schools in a different way. As a parent, I know how mental health challenges can sneak up on you and I really believe in Invincible Me’s vision to support both young pupils and their educators and school leaders in terms of their wellbeing.”
