- To reduce stigma associated with mental illness by enhancing knowledge and positively influencing attitudes and behaviours in university and school students.

- Promote awareness of mental illness in school and university students, and support leadership among the student body.

- Recognise signs of mental illness in themselves, family and friends.

- Provide students with key information about where to get help.
