Te Ngako Community Mental Health

Community Mental Health & Addiction Services  -  Rotorua and Southern Lakes

We have two Adult Community Mental Health & Addiction teams – based in Rotorua and Taupo covering Southern Lakes (Taupo; Turangi and Mangakino ).

The team also includes a Perinatal team sometimes called Maternal Mental Health (pregnancy and the first year of birth) and an Opioid Substitution Treatment Service.

Our Taupo based services also include primary mental health and addiction clinicians who work closely with GPs in the region and deliver talking therapies.

Each community team has representation from psychiatry, psychology, community nursing, social work, occupational therapy and addiction specialists. The teams provide assessment and treatment services at home, in GP surgeries and also in a clinic setting. If you identify as Maori we have Whai Manaaki who can provide you with cultural support.

Our goal for service is to improve the emotional wellbeing of the people we serve.
