Brief Biography: 

Our vision is: We will cease to exist when equality for mental health is no longer considered out of our reach, and when people receive the best understanding and intervention wherever they live, whenever they need it and without shame.

Our values are: Independent. We work without fear or favour of vested interests. Collaborative. We work in partnership with those who share our aims and values. Authorative. We bring high quality evidence to bear on policy and practice. Respectful. We work in partnership with people whose lives are affected by mental ill health. Forward-thinking. We seek to change society long-term and create quick fixes. Innovative. We look for new ways of solving big problems and addressing big questions. Determined. We are dedicated to creating a fairer society and will continue our work until people with mental health problems have a fairer chance. We work across political, health and social boundaries, organisations and constructs.  We are values led and inspired by difference and diversity.  We know that even in the most established status quo change is possible if we make the best case.
