Mental Health and Addictions team
Tui Ora provides a significant range of mental health and addiction services for all age groups.
Our mental health and addictions team is called Oranga Hinengaro. Services are provided flexibly and work alongside each person and their whānau to support their recovery journey. Services are available to all members of the community, Māori and non-Māori. A full range is listed below. We access psychiatry and psychology support when necessary.

- alcohol and other drug clinicians

- kaiāwhina and kaiarahi
- physical health coordinators
- registered nurses

The way we work and deliver services is illustrated below. People are at the centre, with our organisational principles providing a cultural perimeter and the unique strands of our service delivery summed up in seven symbols. To view a version with further detail click here.
Staff closely with Taranaki District Health Board and community agencies to ensure that people accessing services have the right support, in the right place when it is needed.
