Our vision, mission and values demonstrate that the Mental Health Commission is an outward-facing organisation which continues to enhance its scrutiny of services while remaining a champion for people’s rights.
Equity of access to person-centred mental health services and decision support services that deliver high-quality care and support.
Promotion and vindication of human rights in relation to mental health services and decision support services.
Dignity and Respect: Everyone should be treated with dignity and respect. We demonstrate this value through our interactions both within the MHC and with our external stakeholders.
Human Rights: Human rights underpin our approach to everything we do, the services we provide and the services we regulate.
Quality: We commit to carrying out our functions to the highest standards and in accordance with our legal mandates.
Person-Centred: We believe in person-centred support; empowering individuals, and their supporters, to be co-creators in their care, recovery and decision-making.
Independence and Accountability: To successfully achieve our mission and vision we must be independent, transparent and accountable to our stakeholders and the public on whose behalf we work.
Expertise: We value and respect the expertise of our team and those professionals we engage with, thereby ensuring our work is evidence-based and in line with best practice.
