  • Holly Mannion

    Community Development Lead

    After studying Psychology at Liverpool Hope University and working in a wide variety of settings, Holly always wanted a career where in which she could support and empower others. At the start of her career, she worked in supporting roles within further education as well as volunteering with a range of charities, opening her eyes to just how much of an effect poor mental health can have on people’s lives. She started to experience her own mental health challenges making her more passionate than ever about helping others to overcome their wellbeing.

    In 2013 she became a volunteer for Lancashire Mind alongside her full-time role as a Careers Coordinator in a sixth form college. Holly contributed as much as she could to a valuable organisation who offered members of the community information, guidance, and support in how to keep their wellbeing high and therefore, look after their mental health in the long term. This experience led to a change in career direction eventually, and in 2015 Holly became a support worker with another mental health charity, Richmond Fellowship. Gaining first hand experience of supporting people to become more socially included, learning more about how working with people within non-clinical community settings, empowering people with the confidence and self belief to keep themselves well.

Proudly and happy to be able to lead a skilled and passionate team who work hard to deliver a positive preventative message to Lancashire communities.

  • Bryony Littler

    Wellbeing Coach Lead

    Bryony started her journey into this field at University where she studied Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy, it was during this time that she also started volunteering as an administrator at Lancashire Mind to gain some experience. Following this she then decided to further her knowledge in studying for a post graduate certificate in primary mental health care which allowed her to deliver low intensity CBT interventions to people in East Lancashire.

    Bryony started working on the Changing Futures project in 2017 to help build better opportunities for people aged 16+ in Lancashire by offering holistic, “hand holding” support for those who need it. She was able to help people identify barriers to them maintaining good wellbeing and help them be proactive in how they can overcome them. “Seeing how people can turn their lives around really is rewarding”.

    Although challenging, the job helped Bryony to fully understand the idiosyncrasies and differences which can impact mental health and wellbeing for people who were using the service. It was at the end of her contract at the Women’s centre when the job advert for a Wellbeing coach came up at Lancashire Mind which just seemed to be the perfect job opportunity.

    After 14 months as a Wellbeing coach she then decided to apply for my managers role and with the support of the organisational team at Lancashire Mind she was successful -becoming a Wellbeing Coach Lead. “I do believe that with the right attitude and passion we can achieve mental wellbeing for all!” She see’s a bright future for herself with goals and aspirations to help others she will always be in a rewarding job.
