Our vision is to improve the mental health of the nation.

We all have mental health. Better mental health is good for everyone and recognising this is good for society.

We want a society where everyone can thrive. We believe in zero stigma surrounding mental health. We want mental health to be openly discussed and supported.

We want our training to create an unshakable belief that we can all talk freely about mental health and seek support when we need it. We will achieve this through our mission to train one in ten people in mental health awareness and skills.
