Mandy is an Accredited Mental Health Practitioner and a member of the National Counselling Society (NCS).

Prior to this, she gained her BSc (Hons) Social Studies Degree in 2011 and received a 1st in her dissertation on the topic of Eradicating the Stigma of Mental Illness. She continues this work by designing and managing a number of websites because her belief is Mental illness is not something to hide from and it is okay to reach out for help.
