London-based members of this group might be interested to know about a Fellows' workshop at the end of this month on mental health and enterprise. A couple of mental health enterprises will be describing their work, and there'll be a chance to develop ideas or opportunities for collaboration. There'll be two Catalyst awards of between £1,000 and £2,000 available for projects that have real potential to develop beyond the workshop.
For full details and to register,please have a look at the Eventbrite page.
Hello. I'm planning to come to this event. It sounds just up my street. Although I've been a fellow for a while I haven't got involved much yet due to my work load - but also I have waited for a project that focus on mental health. The enterprise bit sounds encouraging. One doesn't often see those two words together.....
My company Daily Life Ltd is an Arts Council England NPO. Our work for the next 3 years is focused on arts and mental health projects. All our work stems from my personal experience of mental illness and recovery. I believe that it is a vital part of any health enterprise that it includes collaboration between 'experts by experience' with 'experts by profession'.
How did the Catalyst workshop go last year?
I've just signed up to this group. It sounds exciting.
I am CEO at Swindon Mind and we're at the beginning of developing enterprise projects wiht young people in film/music and radio.
