Mental Healthy editor is finalist in Mumpreneur Awards

By Catherine Walker

Mental Healthy is proud to announce that our editor, Charlotte Fantelli, is a finalist in the Mumpreneur Awards 2011. 

It is no secret that Charlotte has fought her own battles with mental health.  Knowing how confusing and isolating mental health disorders can be she felt that she wanted to do something to help others who suffer and Uncovered Magazine was born. 

After several successful editions of the magazine had hit the shelves of newsagents and supermarkets, Charlotte realised that the information available through this publication needed to expand and reach a wider readership.  This is when came to life. 

Using the power of the internet Mental Healthy can reach far beyond the newsstand and is freely available to everyone who needs it.  Mental Healthy has a great online community and up to the minute news resources.

Charlotte said ‘I am so pleased to have made it to the finals, it is an honour to be considered for such a great award, it incorporates two things I hold dear – being a mum, and my mission to help anyone with mental health issues.’

Judging is underway for this year’s Mumpreneur Awards.  The finalists have been selected and the winners will be announced on 25the September at The Mumpreneur Conference 2011.

There were to have been 10 award categories with 10 awards given to the most deserving parents in business but a new category has been created to make a total of 11 awards this year. This is because, according to Amanda Farren of the :–

‘When looking through 720 nominations, it was clear there were a handful of people who had made it their mission to help support others in a variety of ways. Our standard categories would do them no justice.’

This is when ‘Mum on a mission’ award category was firmed. Amanda continues ‘We wanted to shout and rave about what each of these people were doing, so we created a special category called the ‘Mum on a Mission Award’, consisting of four finalists who, from their own personal experiences, have created businesses and organisations with the intention of supporting others. When asked about Charlotte’s nomination Amanda told us Charlotte, along with the other three finalists within this category, is an inspiration not only to those who are affected by mental health issues, but to us all.’

So, from the team that work with you and, I am sure, all the readers who are helped by your work, all that is left to say is ‘way to go Charlotte!!!  We are all so proud of what you have achieved so far and know that Mental Healthy will grow and grow.’
