A Community Model Mindset

HeadsUp embraces a Community Model Mindset, fostering a collaborative environment where agencies, organizations, and businesses work synergistically to achieve a shared vision - with Lived Experience leading the way. Within this framework, decision-making authority and resources are shared, while equity of voice is upheld. We believe that a Community Model Mindset is essential for effective collaboration and resource navigation, serving as a foundational principle and process for HeadsUp.


To sustain a Community Model Mindset effectively, formal commitments play a crucial role. To align with this principle, HeadsUp is interested in partnership with organizations that align with our shared values.
