Mental Health and Wellbeing

East Health has 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 coordinated care delivery and to identify and reduce barriers to access 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.
