A welcoming place for people experiencing a mental health crisis

The Urgent Mental Health Care Centre (UMHCC) provides high-engagement support in a calm, "lounge room like" space to help with your urgent mental health needs.

The UMHCC offers an alternative to presenting at hospital Emergency Departments for a mental health crisis.

We work with you to understand what will help right now, and then if needed, connect you with the right support for later.

Using a combination of peer-led recovery and clinical support, we provide evidence-based, caring, safe and inclusive urgent mental health support.

The Urgent Mental Health Care Centre is a Neami National service, delivered in partnership with RI International and supported by SA Health and the Australian Government.
