Maryam Matter Profile

Hi, I'm Maryam

I'm a Neuroscience and Mental Health Specialist

Mental health is my why and neuroscience is my how.

As a neuroscientist and mental health advocate and specialist, I want to inspire, inform, empower and equip students and professionals with the tools they need to confidently navigate their futures, excel and succeed. I care deeply about improving mental health literacy for all - with the science to back it up.

"I had a wonderful experience as Maryam’s mentee/coachee in 2021 as a part of the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Women in Science scheme at King’s College London. She was always incredibly friendly and approachable, and gave me the space that I needed to talk about and reflect on things without judgment. Maryam’s infectious positivity always made me look forward to our meetings; she was always super involved and took the effort to make our sessions interactive and thought-provoking. She constantly gave me new perspectives to reflect on myself and the world which continue to impact me now, and her encouragement really helped me through one of the most difficult periods of my academic life. Anyone would be privileged to work with Maryam, and I can’t recommend her enough as a mentor/coach."
