Mission & Values
Our mission is to help millions of people worldwide achieve mental fitness and wellbeing.
We dream that, one day, all young people will leave secondary education with the knowledge, skills, and mindset to handle life’s challenges and be ready to thrive in life. We also dream that all adults are able to become their best-self and live a fulfilling life..
We hope that our mission will ultimately lead to a wide range of outcomes, including increased opportunities for all people, better business, stronger economies, and more sustainable communities.
Our mission objectives:
- To help millions of people worldwide achieve mental fitness and wellbeing.
- To support mental health research. This means funding external research and sharing our own research for the benefit of the global community.
- To support mental health education. This means funding and delivering mental health education initiatives.
- To foster positive attitudes around mental health. This means funding and delivering initiatives that foster a healthier narrative around mental health and attitudes towards it.
We are accountable, responsible and truthful. We aspire to be consistent in all our actions and to own our mistakes. We do what we say we will and always aim to deliver our best version of ourselves.
We embrace diversity and strive to achieve equality by seeking a wide range of perspectives to create inclusive approaches and solutions.
We live by our values and we want others to have the same opportunity. We pursue our values by being unwavering in our belief that everyone has the right to live a happy, healthy and balanced life and in doing so, we will assist others in their own pursuit of a life best lived.
