About Think Ahead
At Think Ahead, we want to see a society where everyone with mental health problems can flourish. That won’t happen unless people can improve their social circumstances – because life issues like relationships, living arrangements, and employment have profound effects on mental wellbeing.
To drive change we created the Think Ahead programme, one of the UK’s most competitive graduate schemes, to offer remarkable graduates and career-changers a new route into mental health social work.
Through the programme and our wider work, we attract talented people into mental health services, strengthen training, and spread social approaches to mental health across society.
Our paid, two-year graduate programme combines on-the-job learning, a master’s degree, and leadership training to enable talented people to make an impact right away and throughout their careers.
