Referral Process

Referral is generally arranged through a health professional, often a general practitioner, counsellor/psychotherapist/psychologist or psychiatrist.  Urgent referrals can be made by telephone, while less urgent referrals can be made via letter, fax, email, or the website.

Access to our inpatient and day patient services differs, depending on how the prospective patient is to fund their treatment.  Details of each main funding process can be found on our website.  Funding types include:

  • Private Paying Patients
  • Ministry of Health
  • Accident Compensation Corporation

This programme is attended by inpatients and day patients who reside in the Dunedin community and attend our Therapeutic Programmes during the week, Monday to Friday.

The main Therapeutic Programme is designed to help you communicate with others and understand the reasons behind your own difficulties.  This way, you will be better equipped to make personal changes in your life.

The programme's structured day has an emphasis on group meetings, as well as individual therapy with your psychotherapist or psychiatrist.  You will also take part in a range of activities, from art to housekeeping, which will be an important part of your therapy.
