We all have mental health, in the same way that we all have physical health, and there is a complex range of factors - biological, psychological, environmental and social - that affect it. The current high-profile crisis in mental and emotional health is due to not enough good solutions to help people improve their own health, or to enable professionals to support individuals needing specialist support.
Our approach to mental and emotional health is multifactorial and integrative, grounded in the need to understand the problem and users in context. The result is that our emerging Zinc businesses are approaching this problem from a diverse range of angles (including transport, finance, social care, sexual wellbeing, contraception, long-term conditions, stress, and loneliness) and across a range of user groups (from teenage years to old age).
The UN expects the world to have 9.8 billion people by 2050. And those people are getting richer. Neither trend bodes well for climate change - especially because as people espace poverty, they thend to eat more meat. In Addition an astounding 1/3 of all food is lost or wasted between the farm and the plate. There is money to be saved and impacts to be avoided by reducing food waste
