Ruth Brown MA Cantab, PGCE.
Ruth has been delivering mental health, resilience, parenting and safeguarding training since 2005, in the corporate, education, statutory and voluntary sectors, to both staff and volunteers, including line managers and senior leadership teams. Ruth is an expert group facilitator and a teacher of adults, who has been involved in training and facilitation in a wide range of contexts in the UK and overseas. She is particularly skilled at adapting her delivery style and content to different contexts and multi-cultural organisations.
Ruth’s background is in volunteer management and adult education. Most of her career has been spent in the voluntary sector in training and education. She has also held many voluntary roles in charities and community organisations, including co-pastoring a local church for 15 years. Her experience of managing volunteers and staff has taught her the importance of developing a culture in which every individual is valued, motivated and able to positively contribute to the overall success of the organisation.
She became involved with MAS in 2017, when she was licensed to deliver the Strengthening Personal Resilience and Managers’ Role in Resilience programmes. Since then, she has delivered many MAS Resilience programmes, both in-person and remotely, in her role as Training Manager for CPSL Mind, based in Cambridge.
In April 2021 Ruth became a freelance trainer and joined MAS to train new licensees to deliver the Resilience programmes. She is keen to promote good mental health and to equip people with the tools to look after their own psychological wellbeing and prevent mental health crises from occurring. She believes that the evidence-based resilience framework developed by Derek Mowbray is a practical tool to help individuals and teams to strengthen their resilience and to promote peak performance.
