What we do

We are the mental health charity for people with a lived experience provided by people who have been there.

Our purpose is to create and inspire a world where everyone’s mental wellbeing flourishes.

Looking Ahead
2018—2019

 
 

Social Citizenship
We will finalise and publish the Social Citizenship Framework. This will provide the foundation for a series of roadshows with people accessing our services and staff to explore what social citizenship means in local communities.

Peer Work in Australia
In September we will launch Peer Work in Australia: A new future for mental health services, a joint publication with Mind Australia.

Fundraising and Philanthropy
Following twelve months of careful research and planning, a new fundraising and philanthropy program will be launched in 2018-2019.

Technology
We will progress our move into the cloud with the implementation of Office 365 and the new human resources system. This allows us to provide access to important information from any device that can access the internet and the correct security credentials. We will continue to enhance our cybersecurity program and boost our cyber resilience to protect the sensitive information we hold as part of our work.

Enhanced Disability Employment Service
The new Disability Employment Service Contracts begin on 1 July. Our new innovative integrated service model will be established to provide access to employment supports in nine Employment Services Areas.


Recognition Awards
We will develop a recognition awards program to recognise the great work undertaken by people who work at Flourish Australia.


Marketing Campaign
A new marketing campaign will commence in targeted sites celebrating the achievements of people with lived experience of a mental health issue.
