Referral Process

Referral is usually by CBCT tangata whai ora in the Adult services.


CBCT has peer support workers who are available to provide peer support to adult service users.

Peer support workers have their own experience of mental distress and they work as peers alongside the service user – not as experts.

Peer support workers form relationships with service users and their work focuses on the relationship between the two people. Both people can give help and support to each other, share their knowledge and beliefs and experience different ways of relating to other people.

The peer support service at CBCT is based on an international model called Intentional Peer Support (IPS) and all CBCT peer support workers are fully trained in this model.
