Helen Mayo House

Helen Mayo House (HMH) is a State-wide acute mother-baby unit which admits parents (usually mothers) and their children 3 years of age or younger, if the parent needs treatment for mental health problems such as depression, anxiety or psychosis following childbirth.

On 5th December 2013, HMH moved into a brand new unit on the Glenside Campus. Please see the Map of Glenside Campus (May 2016) for the new location.
