Biographical Info

Who Are We?

Our community based Mental Health Services (Mental Health NZ) support tangata whaiora in determining and realising their goals and aspirations. Our Recovery Facilitators work in partnership with people to develop a collaborative and respectful relationship, taking a holistic, strengths-based approach based on the health and wellbeing model of Te Whare Tapa Whā. Our range of services span the continuum from community-based acute alternatives to post-acute support and respite when needed, through to supporting people to live well in their local community.

What Do We Do?

Our Recovery Facilitators work with people to encourage and facilitate improvement of their health and wellbeing so they can thrive. We work with DHB clinical teams, primary care, community housing and support services, drug and alcohol services, Māori health providers, and other community providers to deliver person and whānau centric services. We provide this support to people living in their own homes, encouraging them to engage with their communities, including a focus on work or meaningful occupation, education and social activities.
