Who we are

The name of the incorporated Association is the Top End Association for Mental Health Incorporated, also known as TEAMhealth.

We are a not for profit organisation that has delivered wide ranging support for people dealing with mental health concerns or mental illness for almost 30 years. We provide quality mental health services, focused on support, recovery and rehabilitation across Darwin, Palmerston and the regional and remote communities of the Northern Territory’s Top End. Our purpose is to create community capacity for good mental health so that all people may lead a full and valued life.

Our organisation was established in 1987 by a group of concerned relatives and service providers of people with mental illness who wished to provide a stable, safe accommodation option for their family members. Service commenced with the establishment of a long term, residential program known as “The Manse” at Parap. This service is still there today and is staffed 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, providing support to people with complex needs who are not able to live independently.

TEAMhealth services grew with the acquisition of funds to provide outreach, training and family support programs to people in the Darwin area.  Further housing options were also developed through our Community Housing Service and long term supported accommodation programs.

Today we provide a range of services across our programs including support for recovery to those experiencing mental health concerns and mental illness, prevention and education services. These programs are provided to individuals of all ages including children, families, carers, youth and the aged; from various cultures and backgrounds. Support includes:

  • Promoting the development and achievement of life goals and skills.
  • Educating individuals, groups and organisations about mental illness, mental health concerns and how to provide support to individuals experiencing mental health problems.
  • Housing options for people who have the capacity to live independently in the community.
  • Specialist 24hr hour, long-term rehabilitation and Sub- Acute Care.
  • A Drop-in and Day Program, Day to Day Living (D2DL).
  • A community based Aged Care program, Home Care Packages (HCP).

We are passionate about the work that we do. Through our longstanding service in the Top End, we have developed great knowledge of the Northern Territory mental health sector, providing advocacy in mental health and social and emotional wellbeing for all Territorians.
