Our Vision

‘A good life for individuals affected by mental health issues.’

Our Values

Accountability – Individually and as an organisation, we are accountable and responsible for our behaviours; activities; decisions; outcomes; and are open and transparent in what we do.

Integrity – We demonstrate integrity by having the courage to do the right thing and stand up for what’s right, being responsible for our actions, being honest and adhering to the highest ethical standards.

Inclusion and Acceptance – We acknowledge everyone’s worth and dignity, regardless of background, abilities or beliefs; we demonstrate empathy, show consideration for one another, and acknowledge the value of others.

Collaboration – We work with others (individuals and groups) to achieve shared goals; sharing knowledge, learning together and building consensus.

Empowerment – We work to empower people and help them gain control over their own lives, fostering power in the individual to act on the issues they define as most important to them.

Our Mission

To work alongside people affected by mental health issues in a way that is meaningful to them; to promote acceptance and understanding of mental health in the community; and to be a leader in innovation and systemic reform in mental health service delivery

Our Strategy – 2018-2021

Our strategy is to deliver effective and reliable programs through efficient service provision with a strong emphasis on relationships. We will continue to monitor our success by seeking feedback and ratings from the people who choose our services.

We will continue to empower our workforce to creatively manage programs and provide bespoke support for people living with mental illness, their families and carers. We will continue to attract and retain the best people.

Service delivery will be in Western Australia.

We will continue with our tailored delivery model focusing on the person not the diagnosis.

With our strong leadership we will improve and provide solutions in the complex environment of mental illness. Our success will be realised one person at a time. We will embrace the National Disability Insurance Scheme and the opportunity it provides to improve the situation of people
living with mental illness.

By 2020, over five hundred people will choose us as their preferred partner in the NDIS.
