The inaugural Mental Ideas Awards will take place in Hong Kong in 2020. The Awards will be compered by Ambassador, Gentleman Juggler and Showman Mat Ricardo: the UK’s No 1 Variety Act!
The annual Mental Ideas Awards reward and recognize inspirational individuals and non-profit organizations that have made an invaluable contribution towards engaging and explaining mental health in daring and innovative ways.
Benefitting enormously from the generosity of sponsors, the objectives of the competition are to create and support the next generation of social entrepreneurs, artist-activists and innovators.
The 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.”
The Awards are open to anybody in any country. Each category is judged by an independent panel of public figures and experts in their field.
In organizing these awards, Brainstorm intends to pilot and launch inspirational solutions to a diverse range of mental health and social issues.
