The annual Mental Ideas Awards reward and recognize creative, innovative and inspirational solutions to a diverse range of mental health and social issues.
Benefitting enormously from the generosity of sponsors, the objective of the competition is to create and support the next generation of social entrepreneurs, artists and innovators.
The Mental Ideas Awards define a social entrepreneur as: “An individual who acts for public or social benefit (rather than to make money), has an innovative approach to addressing a need, and the ability to effectively develop and grow their ideas to maximize impact.”
