Dr Asha Patel is a registered Clinical Psychologist and founder of the serial award winning social enterprise, Innovating Minds. She has been working within schools to support the implementation of a whole school approach to mental health, and more recently she has developed the first online platform (EduPod) to support schools implement the approach. As a social enterprise, profits are reinvested to support children impacted by domestic abuse.
Innovating Minds was founded in 2016 and delivered face to face services. In 2019 the team could not meet the demand; therefore, Innovating Minds went through a digital transformation to scale its services and support schools nationally to access professional support.
