Description

Formerly MidCentral DHB - Tararua Locality Community Mental Health and Addictions Services

The Tararua Locality Community Mental Health and Addictions Team provides services covering Dannevirke, Woodville, Pahiatua and outlying rural areas.

What the service is 

The Tararua Community Mental Health & Addictions team works with Whaiora (people needing services) and their Whaanau (family), general practitioners/nurse practitioners and other treatment providers to help provide care and promote recovery for adults needing specialist mental health and addiction treatment in our community. 


What we do
 

The Tararua Community Mental Health & Addictions team provide: 

  • Advice, assessment, treatment and therapies for people who require specialist mental health and addiction care.
  • Support to other service providers through collaboration and education. 
  • Assists with connection to support and advocacy services for people with mental health & addictions needs. 


Locality Based Delivery Model
 

UPC (Unplanned Care): provides urgent mental health & addictions triage/ assessment, along with crisis interventions for people who are acutely mentally unwell. Tararua unplanned care services is delivered during daytime hours. Whaiora utilising this service will have an assessment upon referral and then be assisted to navigate their plan of care to the services that will best meet their needs as close to home as possible. This locality-based service will be provided through a roster of experienced mental health and addiction practitioners who work within the centre. This service provides a responsive navigation service for people who require unplanned care in the locality. 


FACT:
The Care Coordination Team provides longer term treatment for people with complex mental health & addiction conditions; and provides care within a Flexible Assertive Community Treatment model (FACT). The person’s needs are provided by the one team. FACT aims to ensure continuity of care, to prevent admissions to hospitals and to foster inclusion, so that whaiora can maximise independence and be connected to community and whānau supports.


Time Limited Therapies:
This specialist service is short term and provides assessment, treatment and talking therapies for people who cannot have their mental health needs met within primary care.  An interdisciplinary team works together with the Whaiora and Whānau on a plan to address short term needs. Interventions will include consultation, assessment, individualised and family based short-term treatment as well as therapeutic groups delivered in partnership with primary care.  


IDP:
Our Interdisciplinary Care Coordination Team offers: 

  • Regularly reviewed intervention plans relating to mental health & addiction issues, strengths assessments and person-centred recovery or wellness plans. 


Whaanau Ora Kaitautoko:
