Adult Mental Health and Addiction Workforce
Publishing organisation: Te Pou & Matua Raki
Year of publication: 2015
In 2014, Te Pou o Te Whakaaro Nui and Matua Raki conducted a survey of secondary adult mental health and addiction services across the district health board (DHB) provider arm and the non-government organisation (NGO) sector. The survey asked organisations to provide information about the workforce. It aimed to describe the workforce’s size, distribution, configuration and development needs as at 1 March 2014. Three quarters (75%) of the organisations that were approached participated in the survey (all DHBs and 73% of NGOs).
This report situates the key findings of the survey in the broader policy and service delivery context. It provides important baseline information on the workforce delivering adult mental health and addiction services to the sector.
If workforce information is required regarding children and adolescents, the Werry Centre publishes companion documents such as the 2014 Stocktake of Infant, Child and Adolescent Mental Health and Alcohol and Other Drug Services in New Zealand.
