About Meg.

Award Winning Global Mental Health Leader, Entrepreneur and Educator. 

Meg Zeenat Wamithi is a renowned mental health consultant, who combines her lived
experience and her knowledge to provide authentic and emotional support to other struggling
with mental health illnesses. Founder and CEO of MindMapper UK, Meg is on a mission to
redefine vulnerability as a strength, helping hundreds of individuals across education and
workplaces with their emotional well-being. Booked as a global mental health speaker for a

variety of industries across the globe, Meg focuses on topics such as mental wellbeing, community

development, employee engagement, entrepreneurship and personal development.

As a child, Meg struggled to find positive role models who shared her background, coming from
the only black family in the neighbourhood. When she was just 13 years old, Meg was diagnosed
with a number of mental health illnesses, including depression, anxiety and anorexia. At 14 and
16, Meg attempted suicide, yet despite such adversity, she managed to complete her studies
with superb grades. Whilst studying at university, on her 20th birthday, Meg attempted suicide
again, surviving the attempt and left feeling unsupported in her situation. Motivated to ensure
that no one else suffering from mental health illnesses would go through the same treatment as
she did, Meg founded My Mind Matters Too to support research into youth mental health. To
further emphasise her passions for inclusion and support, Meg also acted as the Vice Director
of Our Experience, an open space for women of colour and non-binary people of colour to share
their experiences.

In 2018, Meg became the founder and CEO of MindMapper, a platform created to connect young
adults with mental health support quickly and easily. With 90% of 16-25-year-olds receiving no
support for their mental health, Meg is determined to help more young adults receive the
support they deserve, so they do not have to experience what she did. MindMapper has already
impacted over 50,000 people across the UK, recognised in publications such as The Guardian
and on the BBC and Channel 5 News. Meg also acts as an Advisory Board Member of
BecomingX, a 20:40 Member, the Amos Bursary, Smiley Movement, and an Ambassador for One
Young World, and has formerly worked as the Mental health Project Coordinator for EACH
Counselling and Support and as the Senior Programme Manager at BITC support SME’s in the
North and Midlands scale. In recognition of her passion for mental health, Meg has been
recognised as an Inside Out 2021 Emerging Wellbeing Leader, been named on the Diana Award
Roll of Honour 2019 and named a Top 10 Rare Rising Star.

Also awarded the King’s Global Experience Award and the King’s Leadership & Professional
Skills Award from King’s College London, it is without a doubt why Meg is considered an
industry-leading authority on mental health and wellbeing. Having worked with companies such
as Amazon,, Santander, KPMG, Smiley, and Clifford Chance to name but a few.
Overall Meg has shared her story with almost 100,000 people across the world.

Meg is currently supporting MIND as the CYP Head of Strategic Programmes and Innovation for
Hammersmith, Fulham, Ealing and Hounslow.
