Zest and Fresh was started in 2017 as a Mental Health Organisation. With mental health issues at an all time high, our aim was to promote a healthy mental lifestyle through various events and classes. Today our mission is the same. We hope you’ll join us on our ‘Zest Quest’ whether that’s from an office, a conferencing facility, a local cafe or your own home.
Additionally, the company pledges to give a nominal amount to a nominated local charity with the aim of living the life of an effective altruist. Please read our blog post about it here: http://zestquest.zestandfresh.co.uk/2017/08/what-haiti-and-grenfell-disaster-have.html
About the CEO
Hi I’m Emily- I’m an avid blogger, chef and running fanatic. I want to tell you firstly about my journey and how it led to me to where I am today.
After successfully completing a degree, I undertook a high pressured job with long hours. While the work was great, it eventually led to a down fall in my mental health. Skip forward 6 months and I’d lost a stone and could barely sleep. Eventually, I ended up in hospital with a serious mental illness.
Skip forward a few months and I was slowly getting better but the NHS had failed me in successfully providing the after care and support I needed. I wasn’t 100% better and I still felt that some sort of holisitc approach would be an excellent way forward. While there were various charities that existed, I felt a lack of cohesiveness between them and certain gaps in their care. This is where Zest and Fresh comes in.
