Our Purpose is "enabling an independent and positive future for people living with mental illness and disabilities." Our Values are: - We work together to empower people to succeed; - We act with humility and value curiosity; - We are trustworthy and act with integrity. Our teams work to enhance mental health and wellbeing by delivering client focused services specifically tailored to meet the needs of individual clients. Our organisation is committed to partnering with individuals to focus on their strengths and enable individual achievement and recovery, and improving health, wellbeing and community connections. - Our service delivery approach is supported by our Purpose and Values. - Our evidence-based recovery framework is aligned to each person's goals. - Our Specialist Services team facilitates the delivery and coordination of care to complex clients, including those who require positive behaviour support plans and are the subject of forensic orders under the Mental Health Act 2016 (QLD) - Our personalised approach to service planning and service delivery recognises that each person is unique and personal circumstances change over time. - Our service approach is flexible and we recognise fluctuating or changing capacity, changing dynamics within personal and family relationships and individual service requirements. Open Minds works collaboratively using a partnership approach with Federal and State funding bodies (primarily Social Services, Disability Services, Health (Primary and Tertiary), Aged Care and Corrective Services) to ensure the best possible client outcomes.
