MindSpot proudly joined the Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) Program when our inaugural Reflect RAP was formally endorsed. Our Reflect RAP signifies our unwavering commitment to building accountability towards reconciliation, with the aim of continuing to better understand the experiences of First Nations people, to provide opportunities, and to build a better future.
Through our RAP and our daily intent and actions, we acknowledge and support our current and future Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander team members, consumers and communities. We also acknowledge the strength and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the incredible richness of their culture, traditions and history.
As an online and telephone national mental health service, we strive to deliver high quality services with care, integrity and respect for all peoples. Unfortunately, because of profound inequities across this great nation, our ability to support some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is sometimes limited or not possible. This RAP is part of our commitment to continuing to strive for better understanding of our First Nations’ peoples, how we can best serve and support them, and how we can support our nation to reconcile the past.
We recognise this is a significant undertaking and one which will lead to changes in how we work and think. We thank the First Nations people who have advised and guided us to date on this journey, and thank, in advance, those who will help us in the future. We look forward to this important work as we grow our understanding of First Nations peoples, their cultures, and their needs. Through this, we look forward to a better future for all.

As part of the Australian Government’s commitment to implement the Uluru Statement from the Heart, a referendum will be held between October and December 2023 to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Constitution by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.
