Description

Stepping out of a hospital environment, like Regional Forensic Services (where people have been looked after for significant periods of time), and stepping out into the community is not an easy step to make. Sometimes, before this can happen, another step must be made before fully integrating back into the community.

Our step down facility provides 24/7 care, 365 days of the year to people who experience mental illness and are making this exciting move. Our services are supported by competent, dedicated staff, who are from various cultural backgrounds and disciplines. The step down facility is limited to referrals by the community team of the Regional Forensic Services at Waitemata District Health Board (WDHB). Standard length of stay can be from 6 months to 2 years.
