Our mission is to help people understand, protect and sustain their mental health.

Prevention is at the heart of what we do, because the best way to deal with a crisis is to prevent it from happening in the first place.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to work with us to maintain, promote and develop the aims and values of the foundation in education settings with a focus on bringing to life the key messages and ambitions of our “Make it Count” campaign in Scotland; our campaign to improve mental health outcomes for school aged children.
