The Northern Territory Mental Health Coalition is the peak body for community managed mental health services across the Northern Territory. We work in collaboration with a wide network of organisations, people with lived experience, their families and supporters across the NT. 

The Coalition is a member of both Mental Health Australia (MHA) and Community Mental Health Australia (CMHA). We work at both a national and local level to improve the mental health and wellbeing of all Territorians. 

Each year the Coalition supports events for Mental Health Week, including organising the community Mental Health Awards and launch, managing the mini-grants program and administering the website and online calendar. Learn more about Mental Health Week.

Our purpose

NTMHC strives to promote awareness and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness in the Northern Territory and to contribute to the improvement of the mental health and wellbeing of all Territorians.

Our vision

All Territorians have the opportunity for the best possible mental health and wellbeing.

Our objectives

At NTMHC, our goal is to provide advice to governments and offer policy input as well as to advocate on behalf of member organisations for stronger NT mental health service provision.
