In July 2011, a group of NGO services began meeting with CDHB to canvas needs for youth mental health services in Canterbury.  A working group was eventually established who developed a service that was intended to increase community access, establish a coordination role and gather information about need. A cross agency initiative between CAF Services, Odyssey House (Christchurch) and Stepping Stone Trust was established and an integrated service model developed that would be mobile and available in a range of youth venues.  

 

The functions for this service includes:

 

  • Develop relationships with youth workers, police, education, CYF, WINZ and social services

  • Provide services in a range of locations, according to need

  • Screen, assess and provide community-based interventions

  • Facilitate access to other services including primary care and specialist services

  • Coordinate youth MH/AOD services  to triage referrals and match people to services

  • Develop community based group interventions according to need
