Together for Mental Health

Brief introduction

Most children grow up mentally healthy, but surveys suggest that more children and young people have problems with their mental health today than 30 years ago. That’s probably because of changes in the way we live now and how that affects the experience of growing up. The emotional wellbeing of children and young people is just as important as their physical health. Good mental health allows young people to develop the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at them and grow into well-rounded, healthy adults. (Mental Health Foundation)

2

What will judges be looking for?

Judges will be looking for influence on the business idea from your subject area/of study as well as ideas on how you would market/advertise your product or service.

3

It is important that your business idea can make money

Whilst it is important that your business idea can make money, the winning idea will not be the one which could make the most money. Judges will be looking for creativity in your business ideas. Ideas which potentially have the biggest impact on the awareness of mental health and wellbeing in the 16-25 age range will score higher with those proposing products or services to support young people at risk of deteriorating mental health; scoring even higher.

Your idea - Be clear, make sure you explain it clearly. How will you market your idea (eg social media)? SWOT analysis? USP? Target market. What competition already exists?
