Our ESSENTIAL aim is to raise mental health awareness in our local area. As a group, we have all witnessed the first hand sheer effects of young people in our local community having a poor mental health. We decided to take action against this and create a business in which promotes mental health awareness, while decreasing the stigma associated with mental health. As our managing director Ben Dolan said, 'Even if we can help one person, we will have succeeded in our aim.' We work to show young people in our community that it is okay to not be okay. Our company slogan which is "Your mental health is ESSENTIAL'' is very applicable to the work we are doing
We are a Young Enterprise team from the Christians Brothers Grammar School Omagh. We created our business 'ESSENTIALZ' around the theme of mental health. In our local area of Omagh, over the last few years, we as a group have seen the effects of people in our community having a poor mental health. We are not experts but we want to ensure that people in our society realise that their mental health is essential.
The purpose of creating this website is to give people the proper information and to try to support people suffering from a mental illness by directing them to the relevant mental health organisations we feel that will give them the best support. Feel free to explore the rest of our website and remember that your mental health is essential.
