The QAMH team has a progressive approach to community mental health enabling us to produce real results by promoting sustainability in the communities in which we work. Our services focus on building the capacity of organisations that are integral to community resilience and address the spectrum of conditions that impact people’s health, wellbeing and recovery.
QAMH recognises the broader conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age, and how these determinants affect the mental health of communities at different levels. We have the ability to apply valuable expertise to address the real factors that influence mental health in an array of settings.
