What is the Segar House Outpatient Programme?
The Outpatient Programme is designed for adults who have a wide range of emotional, psychological, and psychiatric disorders. For example, long standing or severe or difficult-to-treat depression, anxiety disorders, adjustment disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, and personality difficulties. Most are currently being treated or have been treated by Community Mental Health Centres, Specialist Mental Health Services, or other secondary mental health treatment providers. Underlying clients symptoms there is often a history of physical or emotional/psychological abuse or neglect, or sexual abuse, abandonment, loss, and other trauma experiences. Most patients have difficulties in their relationships with other people and with their self-esteem. People with alcohol/drug or eating disorders may make use of the programme as part of their treatment once their symptoms are under control.
The programme consists mainly of group therapy. In a small number of cases we may be able to offer individual therapy; this is generally restricted to clients who are attending a group programme. There is a range of different therapy groups that clients can be referred to. The most suitable group for the client is decided at assessment and in consultation with the client and referrer. Most clients enter the Outpatient Programme via the Skills Group. However, depending on individual client need there may be direct entry into other groups. Clients may move from one group to another as they progress in therapy. Each of the groups listed below takes 8 - 10 participants, both male and female.
The Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Informed Skills Group , The Mentalisation Based Group, The Interpersonal Group
As a small mental health specialist service Segar House – Rauaroha takes referrals from Community Mental Health Centres (CMHCs) and other secondary/tertiary services, and unfortunately cannot accept self referrals, GP referrals or other primary healthcare sector referrals.
The Outpatient Programme is only available to people who reside within the Central (ADHB) or North & West (WDHB) districts of Auckland. It is not suitable for people who are currently in crisis and/or have current psychotic symptoms, are currently abusing alcohol/drugs or are seeking personal growth in the absence of severe psychological problems. People with alcohol/drug or eating disorders may make use of the programme as part of their overall treatment once their symptoms are under control.
