Who We Are

TeamHEALTH is a for purpose organisation that supports people dealing with mental health concerns or mental illness. We seek to create community capacity for good mental health so that all people may lead a full and valued life. We are the only non-faith based, grass-roots mental health organisation that focuses its operations only in the Northern Territory (NT).

Based in Darwin, TeamHEALTH provides evidence based 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. This includes Katherine, Maningrida, and Gunbalanya.

TeamHEALTH Story

Our organisation was established in 1987 by a group of concerned relatives and service providers of people with mental illness who had a vision for the type of care they wanted for their loved ones and the passion, strength and generosity of spirit to turn their vision into reality.

More than 30 years later we are still going strong and expanding our services and supports to more and more people in need every day.

Our core business is to provide early intervention and mental health recovery support, build community capacity to understand and manage mental health issues, and advocate across stakeholders for the mental health sector and its people.

Our Vision

TeamHEALTH's vision is that all people lead a full and valued life. How do we achieve this?

We are passionate about our vision which is all about you and how we can support you on your mental health journey.

We help you to decide on your own wants and needs and to set goals to achieve them. This is the first step in your mental health recovery plan.

Our staff will work with you to build your skills and confidence so that you can achieve your goals and move on with the strength you will develop to lead the life you want.

Our Purpose
