Run in partnership to support better outcomes
Darwin Head to Health is delivered by Neami National and funded by the Northern Territory Primary Health Network.
Through co-design and collaboration with Primary Health Networks (PHNs) and local communities, Neami is developing and delivering four of the eight trial Adult Mental Health Centres, known as Head to Health services, across Australia.
Safe, welcoming and inclusive mental health and wellbeing support
Each Head to Health service is tailored to the needs of the local community and offers a combination of peer-led recovery and clinical support to provide a warm, welcoming and high-quality experience including:
- immediate mental health support for people in distress
- short-term mental health and wellbeing support
- service navigation and helpful, relevant information
- connection and referral for ongoing support.
Darwin Head to Health aims to ease the burden on the public hospital system and provide more accessible services to those needing mental health support, their carers and families.
Neami National is a community-based organisation providing mental health, homelessness and suicide prevention services that support over 9,000 Australians each year. Using a recovery approach, Neami supports people to improve their wellbeing, live independently and pursue a meaningful life.
