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.
Summary of relevant work: 

Our work has created a new, more positive approach to the prevention and treatment of mental disorders, and has developed new models of care for young people with emerging disorders. This work has been translated into a worldwide shift in services and treatments to include a primary focus on getting well and staying well, and health care models that include partnership with young people and families.
