Te Puna recognises that health and wellbeing are affected by many things; some will be physical, others mental, some might be spiritual, while yet others may be whanau related. Our environment can affect these areas greatly. Our Community Support Services are offered to awhi (support) people who are troubled by issues that are affecting these things. We will meet with you and discuss/assess what areas you feel that support might be helpful.
If you are registered with Te Puna you are entitled to access our community services at no cost.
Our Community Support Services are based in Northcote but we are highly mobile and currently have clients from Devonport to Whangaparoa. We even have three members of our mental health team based in Rodney areas!
How We Work
Te Puna operates a "wrap-around" service model. This means we provide services to support every aspect of an individual/whanau health and wellbeing. It also means that the client is the driver of the process - you call the shots! Our role is to use our collective expertise to guide and support you to reach your goals. We call this model the Te Puna IMAP model and you can find more information here.
