Our Vision

That all Australians achieve the best possible mental health and wellbeing. 

We will strive to achieve our vision by;

  • Ensuring mental health and wellbeing is a national priority.
  • Increasing accountability and transparency through credible and useful public reporting and advice informed by collaboration.
  • Providing leadership and information that helps to empower people with lived experience, their families and support people.
  • Working with others to influence decision making, set goals and transform systems and supports to improve people's lives.

Our mission is to give mental health and suicide prevention national attention, to influence reform and to help people live contributing lives by reporting, advising and collaborating.

"Even the most disadvantaged Australians should be able to lead a 'contributing life,' whatever that means for them and this simple goal will be our touchstone and yardstick."
