Mahia i runga i te rangimārie me te ngākau māhaki - With a peaceful mind and respectful heart, we will always get the best results
Community Support Services South (CSS) – a specialist service within Framework - is responsible for engaging and supporting clients with mental illness. The aim is that consumers can engage in their chosen community and achieve their fullest potential. This includes working with the consumer as well as a commitment to work actively in partnership with family/whanau, Awhinatia Mental Health Clinicians and/or GP services. Our catchment area is between Papakura and Franklin. The employees act as a positive role model throughout the process.
The service promotes self management and self reliance for mental health consumers in accommodation, transport, training, employment, self care, and personal and interpersonal skills so that it will enable them to live as independently as they are able to in the community of their choice.
Staff work hard to guide and mentor, using each and every opportunity to create independence so clients are working themselves out of the service. The service is for people with mild to severe mental health disorders who are finding it difficult to live in their community, or to reach their desired goals.
CSS is provided by Framework and is based on a vision of “recovery through partnership”. “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”.
Most support is provided between 8am -8pm Monday – Friday.
