Unfortunately, with growth in availability of syntic drugs and in particular use of methamphetamines, we are seeing an increase in number of people suffering both poor Mental Health and Traumatic Brain Injuries. In particular, we are seeing a significant rise in clients with high and complex needs, who also have significant AOD seeking behaviours and challenges.
This has led to intense pressure on our residential services, and more intense demands for providers and staff in delivering an effective service.
Resources are often scarce, so prioritising se is a constant challenge, especially to DHB’s and NGO's. Pressures of public perception and safety issues and demands of increase in crisis presentations mean that focus is often on crisis intervention, rar than preventative solutions for families and individuals.
This has been recognised, thus new initiatives such as our Mental Health Supported Living Service and home based treatment seek to provide more flexible early community interventions.
By working in partnership with family/whānau, as well as ensuring that we support people engaging with ir local communities our main focus is on finding long term sustainable solutions to need. We also engage actively with our own cultural teams and specialist cultural providers to ensure that services are delivered in a manner that is most appropriate to an individual’s preferences. Anor key aspect; vast majority of services are delivered in homes of three to four clients, which helps m maintain as many skills of daily living as possible, and prepares clients for smooth transition back into community.
