the mentl awards

At mentl we believe that everyone should thrive.

We believe we all prosper when we lift others up. And, that’s why our annual inspiring awards are back, and bigger than ever.

For the public sector, for private companies, for inspiring individuals.

It’s time to shine a spotlight on those who have stepped forward and are making significant strides in the mental health conversation.

Last year more than 70 companies from the UAE made it to the final at our gala dinner – this year the awards are open to the GCC, with entries welcome from the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain.

Independent, respected, meaningful

Our awards are given purely on merit.

Recipients will be chosen by an independent jury of respected leaders from the public and private sector.

Healthcare professionals, mental health champions, CEOs and industry leaders, well-being advocates and inspiring individuals who push boundaries, their vote and their vote alone will determine which organisations are celebrating at our gala awards celebration in Dubai in November.
