Waitemata Update

Updates and events


February 2017

The team at Waitemata sees some changes this year with two new staff, who have been a part of Supporting Families previously. We welcome on board Louise Rattray and Annais Allen, who are settling in and are getting to grips with their role as fieldworkers.

Please also note a change in phone numbers for the North Shore office. The old number has been deactivated and the new number is (09) 378 9134.

Waitemata DHB Family Focus Group 
The North Shore team attend regular network meetings with the Waitemata DHB Family Focus Group, which is a collaboration between the DHB and local NGO’s. The group’s primary role is to enable family and whanau participation and involvement in the planning, implementation and evaluation of Waitemata DHB Mental Health and Addictions Services.

The group also organizes four Family Participation Forum’s a year focusing on different topics. 
The next Family Participation Forum is due to be held in April. Please contact our North Shore team on (09) 378 9134 for more information regarding this.

Family/Whanau Support Group 
We have kicked off this year with strong attendance to our Family/Whanau Support Group.

In March, we will be having guest speaker Duncan Milne, who will be talking about psychiatric medications in general, with a focus on antipsychotic drugs. He is happy to answer any questions that come up, so do come along and make use of this great opportunity!

If you would like to know more about our up and coming Family/Whanau Support Groups in North Shore, or would like to be included on our mailing list for flyers, then please get in touch with us.

When: Every 2nd Tuesday of every month. 
Where: Building 2, 3 Ceres Court, Rosedale
