About Evenhood


“Mentally Healthy Conversations work by focusing the discussion on the things we can do to maintain our wellness.  Good conversations don’t so much focus on what is wrong. Good conversation explore what keeps us resilient and able to perform and be effective, while maintaining our wellness.”

Jonathan Phelan

Evenhood was founded by Jonathan Phelan to help people have Mentally Healthy Conversations. Evenhood’s aim is to see people getting support, rather than stigma, in their workplaces, schools and universities.

Since the early 2000’s, Jonathan has held a number of senior leadership roles and he is an executive coach.   After experiencing a sudden and traumatic child bereavement and subsequent mental health challenge, he gained a deep insight into the obstacles people face when they have mental wellness challenges.  Jonathan has combined this unique set of skills – leadership, coaching and tackling the challenges of a mental health condition – to form Evenhood, through which he gives motivational talks, training and coaching to help people learn how to have Mentally Healthy Conversations.

Through Evenhood’s website you can learn more about how to have a Mentally Healthy Conversation; and our Wellness Support Network offers people the opportunity to give and receive mutual support by using this approach.

Navigation of this website is pretty straightforward:

  • Reading tab: do please read: “How to Have a Mentally Healthy Conversation” which explains Evenhood’s approach.  You’ll also find articles on resilience and other useful subjects.
  • Wellness Support Network tab: here you can find support or offer support or both.  Remember this isn’t about and shouldn’t be about therapy.  This is about peer support using the Mentally Healthy Conversation approach.
  • Contact tab: contact Jonathan at Evenhood to book motivational talks, training, coaching or ask for other support.
