Meet the Team

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.

Dalia Alfred – eCPD Manager

dalia alfred

My primary responsibility is the ongoing project management, development, and subsequent managing of all aspects of the developing learning portal, ACAMH Learn. I also support the events team running ACAMH events. Outside of the office, I enjoy trying out new recipes, as well as taking long brisk walks with my highly energetic pup and spending time with my twin daughters.

Megan Archer – Deputy CEO

Charlotte Bailey – Digital Marketing Executive

I help support the marketing for the organisation. This includes the day-to-day management of our digital media content from social media, podcasts, SEO, analytical data and more. Outside of work, I enjoy reading a wide variety of genres, undertaking creative projects (such as knitting) and spending time with my family, friends and dogs.

Kiera Beasley – Editorial Assistant

I support the publications team with administrative tasks regarding author submissions as well as handling queries from authors and reviewers. Its incredible to be part of an association with such impact and dedication towards improving mental healthcare for young people. Outside of work, I’m a keen theatre and cinema goer and an avid writer.

Prabha Choubina – Publications Director

I manage the journals programme at ACAMH, consisting of JCPP 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.

Hannah Moore – Senior Editorial Assistant

As an Senior Editorial Assistant I support the Publications team in a wide range of administrative tasks and more specifically aid with the processes within JCPP. Working for ACAMH is a fantastic opportunity to understand more about mental health research and how it impacts policy and public attitude. Outside of work I enjoy Swing Dancing and setting myself (often unrealistic) reading goals.

Louie Sandys – Journal Operations Manager

Besides managing the journals, I actively look at improving operational matters – streamlining and customising ScholarOne workflows and reports, and help improve overall editorial office efficiency. 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 am a keen runner.
