Mason Clinic Regional Forensic Psychiatry Services
Mason Clinic Services
Inpatient services are supported by a Court Liaison Team and a Forensic Prison Team at the entry end and a Forensic Community Liaison Team for patients who return to the community.
Newly admitted patients normally start in the Acute Units: Kauri or Totara. Some patients return to prison after assessment and treatment, a few to the community, while others move through Rata Unit which is sub-acute and/or the Rehabilitation Units; Kahikatea, Te Papakainga o Tane Whakapirpiri and Rimu. A Kaupapa Maori rehabilitation unit - Te Aka takes patients who have chosen a recovery pathway that embraces Maori values and concepts. We also provide an inpatient service for offenders with an intellectual disability.
