About Us

Healing Together is powered by Innovating Minds. A serial award winning social enterprise that is breaking barriers to offer a world where people with emotional and mental health needs are supported to achieve their aspirations.

Our Story

The ‘Healing Together’ programme was born out of a request from mothers who had started their journey of recovery from domestic abuse and violence in 2016. They expressed that they wanted similar help and support for their children but could not find anything suitable. Their children were labelled as ‘naughty’, they were at risk of exclusion from school and struggling to access any help.

Since 2016, Innovating Minds has committed to investing surplus income into supporting children impacted by domestic abuse. Over the years the demand for the programme increased (unfortunately) and we could not meet the demand for service alone.

The Healing Together Facilitator programme has enabled us to invest in people that are working therapeutically with children, enabling us to ensure more children globally can access this trauma informed programme.
