Who We Are

TeamHEALTH is a for-purpose organisation that supports people dealing with mental health concerns or mental illness. 

Our purpose is to create community capacity for good mental health so that all people may lead a full and valued life.

We provide 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, including; Darwin, Palmerston, Katherine, Daly River, 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.

From this came 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.

This strong foundation allowed TeamHEALTH services to grow, supported by 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.

Our Services

Today we provide a range of services to individuals of all ages including children, families, carers, youth and the aged; from various cultures and backgrounds. Support includes:

  • Assisting adults in their mental health recovery journey by providing supports that are tailored to individual strengths and needs, life goals and aspirations.
  • Educating individuals, groups and organisations about mental illness, mental health concerns and how to provide support to individuals experiencing mental health problems.
  • Providing support to children, young people and families who are showing early signs of, or are at risk of developing mental illness.
  • Housing options for people who have the capacity to live independently in the community.
  • Residential options to support individuals on a long-term or short-term basis depending on needs and the supports required. 
  • Providing tailored aged care supports so that elder people are able to live the life they wish to lead in their own home.

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.
