Working in partnership
Purposeful partnerships support better outcomes for consumers and extend our capability and reach.
Working with other organisations allows us to offer something new to benefit consumers and the community. We tailor our services to fit the needs of the local communities in which we work and, by collaborating, we can offer holistic services with a ‘no wrong door’ approach to access and support.
Sharing knowledge and expertise with community and clinical services helps everyone to understand how to best support good mental health and build awareness of our services.
Partnerships between organisations can enable stronger programs and improved outcomes for people living with mental health needs. So at Neami we are proud to be known for our strong collaborative relationships with the organisations, communities and people that support better health and wellbeing outcomes for people living with mental illness.
The strength of Neami’s commitment to productive partnerships is highlighted by the inclusion of ‘Partnerships with Purpose’, as one of our organisational Strategic Directions for 2017- 2020.
Our current partnerships span sectors and states and include successful working partnerships with hospitals, clinical mental health services, nongovernment services, universities and private sector organisations. They have resulted in an extension of reach from traditional psychosocial rehabilitation services into suicide prevention, low intensity support and clinical service delivery
