The Open Minds Foundation: Mission & Vision


In line with our desire to create a safer and more open society, our work with young people, their educators, parents and caregivers, seeks to support our Vision and Mission:

Our Vision: a world without coercion.

Our Mission: to create awareness of coercion in its many forms and to educate people, especially young people, how to recognize and resist coercion.

Our Promise: to do everything within our power to minimise the effects of coercion and coercive control, and to strive for its complete eradication from society.

Our Values: Integrity, continuous improvement, transparency and collaboration with others.


 When you believe in things that you don’t understand, then you suffer.
