Emma Last

Emma Last is a Mental Health Advocate and Strategist. She talks openly about her own high functioning anxiety since childhood and her burnout after her 19 year HR services leadership career. 
She supports workplaces, school and individuals to put in place effective measurable mental health and wellbeing strategies that include training, talks, coaching and holistic therapies.

She is hugely driven to help people to understand both mental health problems and positive mental health, so they can develop effective life skills and look after their whole-being not just their wellbeing, thus preventing them from getting to where she did.

Three of her Programmes have been quality assured by the Department for Education to support schools in implementing ‘A whole school approach to mental health’.
