Our Providers

In response to He Ara Oranga, the Government Inquiry into Mental Health and Addiction, Budget 2019 invested $455 million over four years to expand primary mental health and addiction services, enabling people with mild to moderate needs to access free mental wellbeing advice and support, when and where they need it.

Following the success of our Wellington pilot, four Primary Health Organisations and seven Non-Government Organisations have formed ‘The Greater Wellington Wellbeing Collaborative’ to deliver the integrated primary mental health and addictions service known in Wellington as ‘Access and Choice’.

The service has been implemented to 56 general practices (August 2022) across the greater Wellington and Wairarapa regions.

The Collaborative intentionally prioritised implementation of the model in high needs areas, as well as addressing any barriers to access and ensuring that services are appropriate for their local communities.
