Description

Te Whare Awhiora provides a safe place for people who are in mental distress/illness and require 24hr clinical care to recover. Te Whare Awhiora is focused on the needs of people, their families and the community they live in.

Admission to Te Whare Awhiora is for the ongoing assessment, care and treatment of mental distress/illness where this cannot be safely achieved in the community. Based on active crisis/acute intervention we endeavour to prevent further deterioration of mental distress/illness, disability, and the development of dependency.
