The health service is located at De Gray House, Graylands Health Campus, and provides statewide consultation/liaison with service providers and the community, and advocacy for Indigenous consumers.
SAMHS operates with cultural integrity using strategies to include brokering of elders, and traditional healers to participate in particular clinical classes.
