The centre is targeted at adults and will offer individuals and their families and carers on-the-spot assessments, advice, and treatment if required, without a prior appointment as well as access to services suited to their level of need.
The centre has been designed with input from the community to make sure it meets local needs and complements existing services.
The centre addresses some of the current gaps existing for people experiencing high levels of distress or suicidal crisis and will connect them with longer-term care through other local services. This centre will be a caring, friendly and calm, safe environment for those seeking mental health help.
We have $14 million in funding over four years to establish the centre, which is one of eight trial sites across Australia.
Darwin Head to Health is currently offering appointments until the new site opens later in December. Please call us on 08 8914 6600 before you arrive.
