Adult Mental Health & Addiction Services

The service incorporates the whare tapa whā model of healthcare, which ensures that a client’s te taha hinengaro (psychological health), te taha whānau (family health), te taha tinana (physical health) and te taha wairua (spiritual health) are all addressed with equal importance.
