Community Outpatient Services
We have two Adult Community Mental Health teams - North Taranaki (based in New Plymouth) and South Taranaki (based in Hawera). The north team covers an area from just south of Mokau to Tariki, and south team covers from Tariki to Maxwell. We are also able to offer specialist perinatal advice and support across the Taranaki region.
Each community team has representation from psychiatry, psychology, community nursing, social work, occupational therapy and rehabilitation and alcohol and drug services. The teams provide assessment and treatment services at a range of outpatient clinics including Patea, Stratford, Opunake, Waitara, New Plymouth and Hawera.
Community Mental Health Services are mobile with approximately 50% of community activity being home based.
