Passionate about helping people recognise their own and others' barriers and knowing what to do about them.
So why The Root Of It?
The Root Of It exists to normalise the mental health spectrum and help people understand the root causes of social and emotional problems that are holding them back.
When Richard Daniel Curtis' role in a local authority was under threat, Richard took a huge risk and resigned to fulfil his dream, a vision of a multi-disciplinary team, who would work together and help get to the root of a person's problems and actually address them.
Most of the work of The Root Of It is focussed on training others how to understand social, emotional or mental health needs through their award-winning programmes.
Aside from their suite of mentoring programmes offered through The Mentoring School, the team also offer a range of solutions for employers and educational settings, including the Mental Health Aware Programme.
