Our strategic directions
Our strategic directions guide us as we work towards full citizenship for all people living with mental health issues in Australian society.
At Neami, we aspire to place lived and living experience at the heart of what we do. We strive to learn from personal experiences of mental health and or adversity to grow and design better programs and services.
We know the mental health system can work better. So, as one of Australia’s largest mental health specialists, we use our voice to fight for change and system improvements that will benefit all Australians.
From peer support workers to psychologists – we are not just ‘staff’ or ‘case workers’. We’re people. People who listen; people who care; people who come from different backgrounds – including people who have walked their own mental health journey.
We’re people who believe that wellbeing and quality of life are possible for everyone in different ways.
Indigenous Governance Principles
The implementation of Indigenous Governance Principles across the organisation and our programs is a key focus for Neami. The principles look to address the issues of power and ownership imbalance so that we may ‘bridge the gap’.
Growing an inclusive environment for all
We understand that safe, accessible and culturally responsive services and workplaces, require a whole-of-organisation approach that celebrates, values and includes people of all backgrounds, identities, cultures and experiences.
We believe working in this way makes our teams, services and organisation stronger and more effective.
Founded in 1986, we have grown to a 1500+ strong team supporting 38,000 people living with mental health challenges across Australia.
We walk alongside people to help improve their quality of life, on their terms.
