Are you a Changemaker? The 1001 Think Tank needs YOU

The Butterfly Baby Clinic is led by a team of Clinical and Developmental Psychologists within the Centre for Applied Developmental Psychology at the University of Edinburgh. In response to the pandemic, we launched the 1001 Think Tank to co-produce parent-infant mental health resources for families living in low- and middle-income countries and/or affected by humanitarian crises.

With the support of a Student Experience Grant we are collaborating on our first 1001 Think Tank project with Ububele, an organisation supporting families in South Africa, featured in the short 1001 Days Movie.

We are inviting students from across the University to join us as Changemakers in this project from February-July 2022. Students will work alongside UK professional Changemakers in the field of perinatal and infant mental health to co-produce parent-infant mental health resources with Ububele’s staff and the parents they support. Interested student Changemakers do not need any prior knowledge of mental health as we will be working in multi-disciplinary teams. So whether you’re a budding writer, artist, musician, blue-sky thinker or anything in between, we need you on our team. The time commitment will be 1-2 hours per week, which includes attending fortnightly 1 hour team meetings and working on tasks between meetings.

We are hosting an online information session from 15:00-15:30 GMT on 4th February to talk about the project and answer any questions. To register your interest in joining the project, please complete the online sign-up form to receive a Teams link. We will be recording the session and will send a copy of the session to anyone who signs up but cannot attend on the day. If you would like to contact us about anything before then our email is:

We look forward to welcoming you to our team.
