ODC is primarily a collection of young adults driven by the desire to create an organisation that is designed by young people, for young people. One that really understands and reflects the perspective of being a young person in these modern times.

We are built upon lived experience across all staff, Peer Mentors, Trustees and partners. Working from a position of knowledge, compassion and trust. Along with a deep understanding of the lived experience of poor mental health and the skills, knowledge and interventions needed to change it right now.
