Our vision is for all young people to enjoy optimal mental health as they grow into adulthood.
Our mission is to reduce the impact of mental ill-health on young people, their families and society by:
Providing young people with emerging mental illnesses with stigma-free access to holistic, high quality and evidence-based clinical services.
Developing better interventions, treatments and service systems in youth mental health through research.
Supporting communities to better respond to mental ill-health in young people through public education and service development.
In implementing our mission, we value:
Young people: young people have the right to timely access to high quality, evidence-based, age-appropriate and respectful mental health care.
Participation: young people, families, and the community are key partners in improving young people’s mental health.
Evidence: policy, practice and services in youth mental health should be informed by the best available evidence of what works.
Innovation: new approaches to prevention and care have enormous potential to improve mental health outcomes for young people.
Optimism: with appropriate supports young people can and do recover from mental ill-health and go on to achieve great things with their lives.
Our people: the quality and commitment of our team is integral to our success.
