The Refugee Mobile Team also consults, trains and collaborates with mainstream mental health services, to assist them in working more effectively with refugees from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. In some cases, the team will work together with mainstream providers, and in complex or high needs cases will manage cases and deliver treatment directly.
Costs and Funding
All services are provided free of charge. Funding is provided through a synergistic collaborative partnership of the NDSA, Counties Manukau DHB, the ASB Community Trust, the United Nations Office of the Commissioner for Human Rights, the United Nations Fund for Victims of Torture, donors and corporate sponsorship contributions for vehicles. The NDSA contribution funds four clinical positions.
