TeamHEALTH provide services and support to Territorians who have a mental health concern or are vulnerable and disadvantaged. This could include supporting people when they come out of hospital, or when they become unwell, to regain confidence and connections. Perhaps it’s gaining safe and secure housing, getting a job or gaining new skills. It’s about supporting them to undertake daily tasks that are often taken for granted.
