Platform Trust supports a network of organisations that believe a modern mental health system requires strong community-based supports for people with mental illness and addictions. We encourage sector collaboration and provide a contact point for nationwide feedback on issues relating to mental health and addiction non government organisations (NGOs).
A flourishing, innovative, well connected community based mental health and addictions service sector that makes a difference in the lives of individuals and communities.
To inform, shape and influence.
To be a serious champion of system change.
Platform’s work is driven by the belief that:
non-government organisations have a critical role in contemporary health and social service systems
individuals and communities flourish when the experience of many is harnessed
the recovery of individuals depends on an evolving and transforming mental health and addictions service system.
