The community based services of ACT Health include early childhood, youth and women’s health; dental services, rehabilitation and community care; mental health and alcohol and drug services. In addition, justice health services are provided within the Territory’s detention facilities.

ACT Health is a partner in teaching with the Australian National University, the University of Canberra and the Australian Catholic University.
