Our Principles

Our main aim is to share knowledge internationally about mental health in order to improve people’s wellbeing. This know how is about how to live healthily, ensure that working practices and services have maximum impact, and are suited to different cultures across the world.

Careif works to a core set of values.

These are to:

  • respect the traditions and values of individual societies and cultures around the world
  • promote positive changes to services (or how services are provided) and good quality care
  • encourage people’s natural creativity, and to share with and inspire others
  • bring together individuals, communities, non government organisations and government bodies to achieve change, and develop evidence of what works through formal research, evaluation and practice based knowledge
