To mark Stress Awareness Month we were pleased to be run an online session in collaboration with Social Enterprise Mark CIC, where we explored how social investment can support social enterprises and other social businesses to tackle health inequalities, with a focus on organisations which provide mental health support.
We provided an introduction to social investment and provide a few case studies to demonstrate how this can work for health and social care providers.
Then, we heard from Peter Frewer of Mentis Tree CIC (See casestudy), a social enterprise providing low-cost psychological therapies across East Anglia, which took on investment to buy their own premises.
We ended the session with an informative and engaging Q&A.
