The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting all of our lives in many ways. It has forced us at the SHM foundation and particularly in the Ember project to reassess our values as we find new ways to live and work.
Ember is an initiative led by the SHM Foundation and the Mental Health Innovation Network that finds, connects and funds excellent grassroots mental health projects around the world.
Within Ember, we've spent a lot of time in the last few weeks reflecting on how we can respond to this crisis, both in the work we're doing and the way we do it. We felt it was important to first define our approach as a team - how we want to work together and support one another. This allows us to build our approach as an organisation on firm foundations.
These values form the foundations of our approach.
