One in five New Zealanders will experience a mental illness at some stage of their lives.
We provide services for residents of the Hutt Valley who are experiencing moderate to serious mental health problems.
We are committed to respecting our obligations to the Treaty of Waitangi, and providing culturally safe and appropriate services in partnership with consumers/tangata whaiora and their families/whānau.
Where to find help
If you are concerned about your immediate safety or the safety of someone else ring 111.
Do you, or does someone you know need help now? Call Te Haika on 0800 745 477.
Te Haika is our mental health and addictions contact centre for people in crisis or experiencing moderate to severe mental health or addiction problems. It is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by mental health and addiction professionals.
A GP can give advice to someone experiencing problems with mental health. They may treat the person directly or refer them to one of the other services available in the community.
DHB Mental Health Services
