This is a specialist mental health service with a MDT that strives to honour cultural and clinical considerations when engaging with the whanau.  They provide assessments, interventions and treatments for young people who present with serious emotional, social and/or behavioural problems.  They hold clinics on-site where clients are seen in their homes, at school and/or in the community.  Some clients will be seen in the clinic and not in their homes.  This role can be quite challenging and requires a really good understanding of Maui culture, the principles which underlie the Waitangi Treaty and Te Whare Tapa Wha, ie physical health, spiritual health, family health and mental health.
