It is a city that understands and supports the availability and ease of access of mental health services based on a stepped care approach.

It is a city that has increasing capacity to assist individuals in achieving their best health and well-being as well as greater ability to support and guide when required.

It aims to establish a community culture where the stigma around mental health is reduced and supported in a positive community environment.
