Molly Anderton

Neurodiverse Connection

Molly brings to the NdC team her passion for improving mental health services and support. Her expertise is informed by her own experiences of accessing a range of inpatient, outpatient, mental health and eating disorder services, alongside the challenges associated with being late-diagnosed autistic.

Pre-diagnosis struggles with mental health led to Molly experiencing barriers to accessing education, which only increased her determination to improve society’s understanding of autism, mental health, and the accommodations that can enable individuals like her to thrive. She has supported students facing mental and physical health challenges as a science tutor and is currently working as a co-researcher on projects relating to young people’s mental health and education.

Molly consults on and contributes to policies, procedures and training across various roles as an Expert by Experience in both the NHS and private sector. She influences change on a service level through her dedication to enhancing coproduction, advocating for service user experience and offering peer support.

Molly is also a proud dog Mum to two miniature dachshunds. She enjoys taking them for walks, anything crafty, going for coffee and listening to Taylor Swift.
