About APMHA Healthcare


APMHA HealthCare Ltd is a new Not For Profit company in July 2019 and has evolved from the Victorian Primary Mental Health Alliance Pty Ltd. This change to a Not For Profit entity better reflects the values and benevolent focus of our mental health programs for under-serviced, priority populations.

APMHA provides intake, triage, secondary consultation and clinical and psychological services for a variety of funders through nominated program streams by a diverse and highly experienced professional workforce across Australia.  Our focus primarily evolves around primary mental health care within a Stepped Mental Health Care framework.

APMHA is governed by a Board of Management and our partners and clients include governments, community health services, PHNs, private mental health practitioners, community and private sector organisations and peak bodies. APMHA has three critical Board Committees which provide and avenue for input and advice by the senior leadership team into strategy and business development. These committees include:

  • Executive and Leadership Committee
  • Clinical Governance Committee
  • Finance, risk and audit Committee


APMHA HealthCare Ltd is Accredited under the following standards: AS/NZS ISO-9001-2016, National Standards for Mental Health Services – 2010 and is a NDIS Registered Provider under the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Alaya House Concept

At our Alaya House Hubs, we have created a welcoming, safe and supportive space for community members of all ages, who require specialised support for mental health issues, drug and alcohol issues, and psycho-social disability.

In 2019,  APMHA HealthCare realised our dream to to establish our first mental health wellbeing hub located in Shepparton, Victoria. Our aim was to create a hub which focuses on wellness, recovery and supporting people to live a full and contributing life as determined by them. Through this established hub, we have created a physical presence in the region and create a holistic team approach with our various funded local mental health services and workforce. In 2021, we opened our second hub in Footscray, Melbourne.

Our Model

APMHA offers employed, secondment and sub-contract arrangements for clinical and non-clinical workforce it engages to ensure a national footprint of highly qualified mental health professionals. APMHA has developed a Service Delivery Framework to reflect a Stepped Mental Health Model of care which sets out the strategic direction of the Company, the funding it has been awarded and the partnerships it has forged.

APMHA has developed relationships with providers who focus on health promotion through to acute services, to ensure the mental health stepped care is realised and clients are linked and transitioned within a seamless system and minimisation of duplication of service delivery.
