Staring a social enterprise in mental health

Hi, i dont really know what this place is! I was advised to come here via the business advice centre in leeds. I am trying to start a social enterprise and a separate business in a similiar field, that being mental health. I myself have a mental health disability, but conversely my ideas have been born from this "disability". I hope in whatever i do i can help effect positive change in the world and that is currently in my field of expertise, mental health. I wish to help change the landscape. My background is in catering and was a head chef by the age of 21. Between then and my late 20s I was sectioned 6 times and head chef in two other estaishments. A juxtoposition! I really do need help in realising some of my dreams inspite or despite of my disability.
