We are the Northern Adelaide Mental Health Alliance

Otherwise known as NAMHA for short, we are a collective of community members made up of people with lived experience, NGOs, local governments, community service providers, key stakeholders and the Northern Adelaide Local Health Network (our partners below). Our focus is on improving services, pathways and integration across and within systems so people with mental health issues have better outcomes. We develop, implement and measure collaborative partnerships between those in the NAMHA as well as other stakeholders to improve health outcomes for the Northern Adelaide community.
