Statement from Our Founder
Hi, my name is Andrea McGowan and I am the Founder of AM Wellbeing. Thank you for visiting us today! I am so glad you took the time as I wanted to share with you a bit about why I started my community interest company.
In September 2019 I decided to leave my post with a large social care organisation to launch my business. I am truly thankful for my
experiences within social care but felt the time was right to use my skills and knowledge to follow my own dreams and campaign for real change within mental health and education. From my experience
working in school directly, I believe in order to make a real change education and communities we must help support the whole school community
I believe I can make a real difference and change to how we address mental health. My passion and led me to create AM Wellbeing, putting faith in my skills and knowledge to drive my dream forward. As part of my personal and professional development I became a student of Zen Mindfulness. This has taught me so much personally, building my confidence and enhancing my own mindfulness
I am proud and what I have achieve so far with AM Wellbeing and I know this will continuously change and adapt. AM will also focus on the mental health of children and communities and I am determined to improve the way we educate ourselves around mental health.
As the business expands and we develop more resources we will continue to focus on our mission:“To Enhance the lives of children, families and communities by providing a better understanding of mental health using early intervention approaches.”
