Karakan is a vibrant and sustainable organisation that was established to support people with mental health needs including those who have a disability, to gain identity, connection, and independence within their communities. We have a clear vision of an Australia where people with mental health needs are included and valued. Our mission is helping people with mental health needs build resilience and live life better, together. We are guided by our values of connection, inclusion, and resilience.
Our guiding principles articulate the beliefs and commitments that form the basis of our organisational culture and practice and are visible in our leadership, strategic planning, and daily work. They uphold our values and serve as a beacon for the organisation to govern. Our guiding principles also determine the direction we take in continuously improving our services to meet the needs of people and the quality standards against which we measure our performance.
