Adult Mental Health & Addiction Services


With mental health assessments and treatments culturally appropriate for our whaiora (our clients seeking wellness), the service aims to provide a “cloak of wellness for Hauraki”.
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.
The Adult Primary Mental Health and Addiction Services are delivered in Coromandel, Paeroa, Waihi, Te Aroha, Thames & Whitianga, specifically targeting adults between the ages of 18 – 65+.

Services include:

  • Counselling
  • Home-Based support
  • Back to work support
  • Maternal mental health
  • Life skills groups for people with mental health & addiction issues.
  • Social work services
  • Mobile mental health support services
  • Recovery group programmes
  • Whānau/family advocacy support

On receipt of referrals, they will be assessed by the Triage Coordinator, who will then make contact with the referred client and assess their support needs and risk, either by phone or face to face.
This initial contact by the Triage worker will also give the client an approximate waiting time for whatever service they are being allocated to. The referrer will receive a letter acknowledging receipt of the referral.
