Jon Manning started Arthur Ellis in 2017, naming this movement after his grandfathers, Arthur Manning and Ellis Graham. Ellis suffered with schizoaffective disorder. Without anyone knowing how to deal with this enduring illness, Ellis deteriorated to the degree where he sadly spent most of his life in hospital.
After Jon suffered with a mental illness for 20 years without being able to access meaningful support, he founded Arthur Ellis to change the way we see and support mental health. To ensure that we create a culture where if someone is experiencing any difficulties, we all have the knowledge to practically help.
Jon now leads the Team and has had the wonderful opportunity to share his story and vision as a Guest Speaker at venues such as The Cambridge Union, The RSA, BBC Look East and on Radio.
