Michael started with First Person Project as a volunteer however has recently become one of our full time project coordinators. Michael is currently studying Psychology, Health and Wellbeing at Hope University, having just completed his second year.


To complement his education Michael has over 10 years' experience working with adults with disabilities, learning difficulties and other complex needs.


Michael has also held leadership roles whilst working with children in care, children with different needs and children with mental health problems, including working therapeutically to re-parent children’s behaviours.  

Michael was keen to join the FPP team for two main reasons, firstly to gain further experience for personal growth and professional development, but more importantly to help people who are struggling day-to-day with mental health related issues. Michael has a desire to create a healthier, stronger society. He aims to do this by sharing his mental health knowledge and by equipping people with the tools they need to help themselves and others.
