In 2019, the Create Open Health programme was launched to find new entrepreneurial talent with digital ideas, solutions or products that could help build resilience in young people and support positive mental health - all through community enablement, empowerment, communication and collaboration.

This open innovation initiative, brought together by the Wellcome Trust, Creative England and the West of England AHSN, utilised innovative outreach methods to engage with a broad and diverse participant group, making innovation relevant to all and help to develop early stage digital solutions addressing key challenges faced by the NHS today - supporting positive mental health and wellbeing of young people.
