Neami National is a community mental health service supporting people living with mental illness to improve their health, live independently and pursue a life based on their own strengths, values and goals. We were founded in 1986 by a group of concerned residents wanting to support people in their local community.
Our vision is for full citizenship for all people living with a mental illness in Australia.
Our mission is to improve mental health and wellbeing in local communities.
Our values and core principles are self-determination, choice, change, respect, empowerment, growth, hope, wellbeing, partnerships, diversity, learning and quality.
We believe everyone can live a fulfilling and meaningful life through connecting with the things they care about, the people around them and their local community. Our role is to work with and walk beside people in their own recovery journey, whatever that means to them and however long it takes.
We use an evidence based approach called the Collaborative Recovery Model (CRM) to support people through our services. The CRM assists individuals to identify their personal strengths and values, to set goals and then helps them make progress towards achieving them. As an organisation based strongly on our mission, vision and values, Neami is committed to demonstrating the highest standards of safety and quality across all of our services. Neami views quality, safety and clinical governance activities as key components of the role and responsibilities of all staff and an essential process in the provision of safe and high quality support services to consumers.
Today, we support over 8,000 Australians in more than 50 locations across New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia across a variety of short and longer term mental health support and housing services.
Me Well (Mental Health & Wellbeing Australia) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Neami National operating within the National Disability Insurance Scheme framework. The NDIS is a person centred, market driven, social insurance scheme established to provide support for people who have a permanent or likely to be permanent disability for the whole of their lives. We believe that recovery is an individual process and that with the right kind of support everyone can live a life based on their own strengths, values and goals for the future.
We are a smoke free organisation.
