    CORC Chair

    Ashley Wyatt has been involved with CAMH provision for the past 20 years. He was the Leeds CAMHS commissioner for Health and the Local Authority, and was instrumental in developing closer  links between emotional health provision in schools and health based CAMH services in Leeds. He spent some time working for the Yorkshire and Humber NHS England Clinical Network, and also chaired one of the five CYP IAPT Collaborative Groups.

    He is now Chair of Governors of a primary school, and therefore increasingly observes mental health provision for young people from an education perspective.

    As a member of the CORC Board for the last 15 years he has seen CORC develop its range of functions, and now, as Chair of the Board, he is committed to CORC both adapting to, and influencing, emerging policy and practice concerning children and young people’s emotional health.

    Beth Ingram

    Director of Hearts & Minds Peer Support and Youth Mental Health Consultant

    Beth is Director of Hearts & Minds, a Peer Support charity for young people experience mental health difficulties, as well as a consultant, trainer and advisor in youth mental health for a whole range of schools, services and organisations. Her interest in the mental health of young people comes from her own lived experience and so she is especially passionate about bringing the perspective of young people and those with lived experience into decision making and service provision. 

    "I support CORC because I believe support for young people's mental health needs to improve, but that this will only happen if we know what does and doesn’t work well in current service provision. From my ‘professional’ perspective I know how easy it is to assume I or my service knows what will help a young person, yet from my own lived experience I know how disempowering that can be and how it often doesn’t end in a positive experience. The research CORC does allows both those groups to come together along with researchers and academics to look at what a wide collection of data actually suggests is the case and then how this information can be used to improve what we are already doing as a system and a society. I am a Board Member because I believe and trust in the values of the organisation and want to contribute to those being upheld and the organisation always looking for opportunities to improve."
