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.
Tim Colebrook – Editorial Assistant
I coordinate the editorial process for CAMH, alongside journal development and bibliometrics. It’s rewarding to know that in publishing the work of researchers, clinicians and practitioners to a broad readership, what we are doing at ACAMH is having an impact by benefiting the lives of children and adolescents globally. Having grown up in Devon, I am a keen supporter of the Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club.
Louie Sandys – Senior Editorial Assistant
I coordinate the editorial process for JCPP, alongside journal development and bibliometrics. 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 playing Squash, bouldering and a good game of Catan.
