Martin Pratt – CEO
As CEO it is my role to create problems for those around me to solve, problems I know will lead to the innovation and creativity required to improve the performance of my organisation. But also to know when to get out of the way of the staff I empower and allow them to run with their ideas, make their own mistakes, experiment and innovate, to allow my team to be the very best they can and allow them to achieve. My interest in working for ACAMH stems directly from my experiences. I feel incredibly privileged to be part of a body at the very forefront of advancements in mental health. Outside of office life I have a strong amateur interest in modernist architecture, enjoy dystopian fiction and am a keen walker.
Megan Archer – Deputy CEO
Prabha Choubina – Publications Director
I manage the journals programme at ACAMH, consisting of JCCP and CAMH. My work facilitates the process of research output being reviewed and published, and hence plays a part in the dissemination of knowledge which is the core objective of ACAMH. Outside my work my two girls and my family take up my time and attention – together, we walk, talk and write poems!
Matthew Kempen – Marketing Manager
Hello. As my job title suggests I oversee the marketing for the organisation. I have nigh on 25-years experience on local, national, and global marcomms projects. For ACAMH I direct the brand, coordinating communications to achieve; ‘More members, more delegates, more awareness.’ I am immensely proud to be working for ACAMH and, in a small way, to be part of the advancement of child and adolescent mental health. Outside of the office I’m a MAMIL, and a Radio 4 comedy fan.
Louie Sandys – Senior Editorial Assistant
I coordinate the editorial process for JCPP, alongside journal development and bibliometrics and also coordinate The Bridge. The journals have made a direct impact on government policy on child and adolescent mental health, which makes working for ACAMH very satisfying. Outside of the office, I enjoy skateboarding.
Anna Kettle – Events Executive
I help with the running of events here at ACAMH, managing the day-to-day admin, assisting our Deputy CEO Megan with the organisation of events, and generally trying to maintain an air of calm in the office. I have recently completed my MA in Political Communications at Goldsmiths, University of London. Working for ACAMH had a direct impact on my studies, inspiring me to research the portrayal of child and adolescent mental health in film and television for my final thesis.
Mubasil Chaudhry – Editorial Assistant
I coordinate the editorial process for CAMH, alongside journal development and bibliometrics. To be a small stagehand in the vital work this journal helps disseminate is of great personal privilege. Beyond the workplace, I spend my time studying classical literature, particularly Theocritus and Ariosto.
Annie Vencl – Digital Marketing Executive
Hi, I oversee the general upkeep of all of the digital media content that is generated directly from ACAMH, this includes the website, social media, e-newsletters, podcasts, films, animation, SEO and analytical data. I’m taking part in a 13-month placement (from July 2019), sandwiched between my second and third year at Bournemouth University studying English. Whilst in London I intend to go to a wide range of concerts and complete a touristy bucket list.
