Description

The ABC Team also provides assertive brief care to people in their home as an alternative to ward admission or enable early discharge from the ward as well as providing intervention aimed at preventing people requiring further specialist mental health care by identifying and building on internal resilience within the individual and ensuring good supports are in place.

The team also facilitates access to New Plymouth and Hawera based respite services for adult/older adult and youth as another option of brief intervention and support.
