Our vision

Our vision is to improve the perinatal mental health of women, men and their families in the ACT.

Our mission

Our mission is to provide evidence based, innovative early intervention support and information to help families understand their perinatal mental health, normalise their experiences and build resilience.  To assist families on their pathway to recovery, work with the community to reduce stigma and benefit the wider society.

Our values

Respect
We have regard for people and treat them well in all our interactions both within and outside of the Perinatal Wellbeing Centre. We recognise the dignity and rights of all and we make time to listen, to be courteous, and to respond.

Resilience
We encourage resilience and believe that everyone has the ability to recover and maintain their wellness.  We also believe that everyone's journey is individual and they are the expert in their own lives.

Diversity
We see people as individuals and appreciate and welcome their differences. This approach enriches us individually and collectively, harnesses understandings and skills for our work and informs the enactment of our values.

Acceptance
We accept that everyone's journey is their own individual journey.  We accept that everyone comes with a varied history and that everyone's story is valued.

Integrity
The Perinatal Wellbeing Centre consists of passionate, committed, professional people who live out our values.
