About this Service

TPC is a primary mental health initiative that connects whānau struggling with mild to moderate mental health and addiction needs, to counsellors or psychologists.  

Adults access the service through a referral from a GP or other provider such as Taranaki Rural Support Trust or a Lead Maternity Carer (LMC).

Youth (taiohi) and children, aged 10-19 years of age, can access through Child Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), a school counsellor, public health nurse, youth guarantee coordinator or other health professional.
