Run in partnership to support better outcomes
Townsville Head to Health is delivered by Neami National in partnership with Richmond Fellowship Queensland, Lives Lived Well, Townsville Multicultural Support Group and funded by Northern Queensland 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.
Townsville 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.
