South Taranaki team
Our Hawera office in Princes St is a base for a number of Tui Ora services ensuring people in the south can access care and support.
Mental Health and Addictions services include a community mental health nurse, a child, adolescent and mental health (CAMH) clinician, alcohol and other drug support (AOD), a day activity/living skills programme, consumer advocacy & peer support (CAPs) and vocational support (VSS).
Taranaki Youth Services works out of the office with youth workers offering mentoring and support for young people to re-enter education, training or employment.
Programmes operate for parents and babies with the Tiaki Ūkaipō service providing specialist breastfeeding support and Oranga Mokopuna promoting healthy eating, active movement and links to infant learning in early childhood centres and kohanga reo. Rongoā Māori traditional healing provides haumiri (massage), honohono (energy healing) and rongoā rākau (herbal remedies).
Kaumātua and kuia support is offered for any whānau requiring cultural help to navigate through health and social services.
Other services such as our stop smoking/Quit Coaches and therapists working with the Taranaki Primary Connections (TPC) service, are mobile, working around South Taranaki where the need arises.
