Referral Process

You can be referred by your psychiatrist, GP, key worker or other health professional who feels you may benefit from the service. If you yourself feel that you could benefit from the service please feel free to contact us, using the details on this page, and discuss this with a member of the team. Referral forms are available on request - please contact the office or email  

The services are available to anyone aged between 18 and 65 who has a diagnosis of mental health difficulties, who wishes to regain lifeskills and return to community living and would like support to do this.

Once a referral has been received a decision will be made whether it is appropriate for the service i.e. if it meets the criteria. You will then be contacted to arrange an appointment to carry out an assessment to determine your needs. You will be contacted within seven days of this and provided with further information regarding the outcome.


The Mental Health Recovery Service welcomes people from the MidCentral area. It has been developed on recovery principles to enable those with mental health difficulties to regain or develop control over their lives and re-establish the lifeskills needed to achieve a life that they feel is fulfilling. A support worker will help you to identify specific goals and write up support plans to assist you with progress. We have homes providing residential services in Palmerston North which is staffed 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
