Mental Health & Addictions Service

Today

Description

Te Whare Mahana is an independent, Non-Government Organisation (NGO) based in Takaka, Golden Bay. Started in 1989, it provides a range of community-based mental health services within the Golden Bay region (a Community Mental Health Service,  Employment Services, Youth Support, Crisis Service and Crisis Respite Accommodation) and an internationally recognised residential National DBT Programme for people with personality disorders. Teams are staffed by trained professionals who are committed to providing best quality services and a genuine, warm and welcoming atmosphere for clients, their families and whanau. Golden Bay is renowned for its strong and supportive community, spirit and beautiful environment, so is an ideal setting for this range of services. Te Whare Mahana has strong connections with other service providers and agencies within the area and works closely with Golden Bay Community Hospital and local GPs and the Mohua Social Services.

Te Whare Mahana is rightly recognised today as a key contributor to community health in the region and as a leader in recovery-focused, mental health service delivery nationwide.
