Regional Youth Forensic Service

Public Service


This Regional service provides mental health assessments for young people with a known or suspected mental health disorder who are engaged in offending behaviours and involved with the Justice System. As a regional service we see children and adolecents for the entire Auckland region.
Children and adolescents are seen with their family or legal caregiver's involvement.

Referral Expectations

Referrals are accepted from Oranga Tamariki - Ministry for Children, Police, Courts or Youth Advocates.

Whilst families are welcome to make phone enquires, referrals cannot be accepted directly from family members. Similarly, adolescents cannot self-refer.

Referrals for treatment for young people in Oranga Tamariki custody can be made to treatment subteam Taiohi Tu Taiohi Ora by emailing Taiohi@adhb.govt.nz. These young people requiring treatment are usually referred by GP, local CAMHS service, case leader at residence or following a court ordered report.
