Description

Segar House - Rauaroha (in Maori "gift of peace") is part of the Auckland District Health Board’s Mental Health Service.
 
It is a tertiary psychotherapy service that specialises in treatment for individuals with significant psychological problems. The treatment programmes are designed to help individuals learn more effective ways to cope with painful life events, reduce distressing symptoms, and to build lives in which they experience a greater degree of wellbeing. Although some individual psychotherapy is offered, most treatment involves group psychotherapy.
 
The catchment it serves includes central and north & west Auckland (ADHB & WDHB). 

There are two main programmes offered by the service:

  • the Outpatient Programme provides once-weekly psychotherapy groups for individuals who continue to live in the community.
  • the Intensive Day-Programme provides a daily therapy programme, Monday to Thursday, for individuals who continue to live in the community.

 N.B. As a very small specialist mental health service Segar House-Rauaroha takes referrals from community mental health services (CMHC's) and other secondary/tertiary services only.

Self-referrals & GP referrals ARE NOT ACCEPTED & will be directed to the nearest CMHC.
