For nearly twenty years, Active Minds has worked to change the culture around mental health in classrooms, workplaces, and communities nationwide. As we continue on our journey, we are committed to upholding the following four values:
1. BE RADICALLY AUTHENTIC.
Our words and actions are real: approachable, reassuring, and practical. We all have mental health, and we meet our community where they are, exactly as they are. The community we inspire brings their whole selves, and are respected for their unique expertise – which includes lived experience. All are welcome and the way we communicate affirms that.
2. EMPOWER THE COMMUNITY.
We actively listen to each other and amplify our community. We value partnership and recognize that our ideas are better when perspectives from up, down, and across the team and community are sought, heard, and considered. We raise each other up to ensure all voices are heard.
3. PURSUE SMART, BOLD INNOVATION.
We shape the next-gen social norms and solutions for mental health to continuously and boldly evolve. We are driven by our “why” and are committed to excellence as we respond and adapt with agility. We are forward-thinking, and always learning.
4. INSPIRE EQUITABLE AND JUSTICE-DRIVEN ACTION.
An emotionally healthy world is not possible without a just world. We believe that equity and social justice are paramount to our work and we use that lens as we look to make change in our world.
