Addresses the currently inaccessibility of mental health and wellness resources. Provides a new model for primary mental health and wellness care. Incorporates community involvement and ongoing prevention into the mental health system.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

The focus on continued maintenance of protective factors against poor mental health will make this a more sustainable and successful model for primary mental health and wellness care. Our inclusion of meaningful social connection and belonging into the mental health system will lead to lasting change.

Explain how you (your team) will execute to make this idea/product successful? What gives you (your team) an advantage over others already in the market or new to this market?

Firstly, no other body is offering mental health and wellness services for a weekly membership, so the idea in itself will put us ahead of the game. Both service users and professionals are fed up with the current mental health system and are looking for a revolutionary idea. Our team has the vision and drive to connect the currently fragmented mental health system and provide a service that does not yet exist.
