The #AddVentureMind Weekend - Stand Up to Stigma

We are inviting people from all walks of life to come together, share ideas, and co-design community ventures to hack mental health stigma.


A white paper will be published following the event, based on the discussion, findings and recommendations from this event. This your opportunity to take part and shape how we can collectively end mental health stigma.

Come and join us in our collaborative space at #AddVentureMind for a weekend of social innovation on 18-19 November 2017, 9.30am to 5pm.

You will:

1. Share ideas and co-design a community venture to end Mental Health stigma and contribute towards a white paper

2. Become a social innovator

3. Enhance your design thinking, social innovation and leadership skills

Are you ready to become an AddVenturer?


Welcome to the AddVenture Launchpad, a collaborative space enabling social innovation and collective impact at scale.

Become an AddVenturer and take part in this exciting weekend, where your ideas and findings will contribute towards a white paper to end Mental Health stigma. This is your opportunity to bring out that creative streak to further support fellow citizens and communities. No previous experience needed.


Despite the recent growth and interest in the social enterprise there are several factors holding it back from reaching its full potential as a catalyst for widespread change. One major hurdle is the lack of opportunity to take a social change idea; test and develop it into a viable venture, and then to finally bring the idea to fruition. We recognise this lack of capacity building opportunities in Birmingham [and wider] for people with great ideas to help their community.

"Enough is enough. It is time to join forces and put an end to mental health stigma. This is your opportunity to collaborate with likeminded people to co-design potential solutions."

~ Jazz - CEO Future Leaders Club
