The Mental Ideas Awards recognize creative, innovative and inspirational solutions to a diverse range of mental health and and social issues.
Benefitting enormously from the generosity of sponsors, the objectives of the competition are to create & 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 & grow their ideas to maximise impact.”
