At WAAMH, we have a vision that Western Australia can lead our nation in stemming the tide of mental health issues in our communities, through:
- Good foundations for mental wellbeing for all Western Australians, wherever you live and whatever your age
- Ensuring there are great services in the community so people can get help for mental health concerns when they need it
- Protecting the most vulnerable people with mental health concerns in our society
We proudly represent the voice of many thousands of Western Australians and service providers who want to see this vision become a reality.
We welcome you to join us and become part of a strong network of community mental health organisations and individuals that influence community attitudes, mental health priorities, policy and practice so Western Australians have the rights, resources and support needed for mental wellbeing, recovery and citizenship.
