Caring for our community

Mental Health, Wellbeing and addictions PROGRAMME

The Mental Health, Wellbeing and Addictions Project was initiated in February 2006.

The fulltime co-ordinator is employed by East Health Trust PHO with specific goals to work with the community and primary health clinics to:
  • Build capacity and capability of primary care to improve access to mental health and addiction needs in East Auckland.
  • Work actively with the community and primary health clinics to de-stigmatise mental illness and actively promote mental wellbeing.
  • Actively liaise with secondary mental health providers to promote co-ordinated care delivery and to identify and reduce barriers to access of quality mental health care.

At East Health Trust PHO we believe that Mental Health is not simply the absence of mental disorder but it is the mental and social wellbeing of the individual

For further details of this programme and whether you or your family might benefit from this, please talk to your GP or Practice Nurse.
