Mental Health Services

Adults 18+

The Home Based Support Service (HBS) is a free community service for adults aged between 18 and 65 years with mental illness.

We are a person-centred service to support people living with mental illness who live independently, but not necessarily alone, in their community.

This service provides support in relation to family/whānau, community living, education, employment and self-management of their wellbeing.

Even if they do not make the original referral, your family GP will be kept informed and involved as the primary medical caregiver.

Referrals

Anyone can make a referral, including an individual or their whānau. Referrals to the service can also come from Needs Assessment / Service Co-ordination (NASC), community mental health teams or acute mental health inpatient services.

Eligibility

This service is available for adults aged between 18 and 65 years of age living with a mental illness.
