Our Strategy: What we're going to achieve in 2022-2027

Our vision is a world where mental health and wellbeing are everyone's business. This is how we want to make that happen.

We have developed our Strategic Plan with and for you, our clients, volunteers, staff, partners, commissioners and funders. In response to what you have said we will consolidate existing activities while strengthening our approaches to client engagement, trauma-informed and rights-based practices.

We will develop our early intervention and prevention activities and embed in a life cycle approach to mental health and wellbeing. We will grow to meet the increased demand for our services which aim to enhance the mental health and wellbeing of the NI population. In the years ahead, we will continue to reflect on what we are doing, ask your opinion on how we’re doing and continuously improve our plan each year.
