  1. Achieve the highest level of health and mental health equity for all people, with special attention focused on unserved and underrepresented communities. 
  2. Collaborate with the Health in All Policies (HiAP​​) Task Force to identify and address the complexities of health and mental health inequities through improved social and environmental factors.
  3. Advise and assist other state departments in increasing the access and quality of health and mental health care and services. 
  4. Improve the health status of all populations and places by eliminating health disparities and inequalities.
