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.
Te Whare Awhiora offers care that aims to help people reach a point where they can safely maintain wellbeing and access other services in the community they live in.
Te Whare Awhiora (Ward 11) is staffed 24 hours / 7 days
