"Appropriate quote goes in here to convince and
persuade people about living and working on the West Coast of New Zealand."



If you're thinking about working on the Coast as a Mental Health Professional, here are some things to think about....

Multidisciplinary teams made up of qualified, talented recovery- focused health practitioners enjoy a wide variety of work at our Buller, Central West Coast and Westland sites.


Our teams are close, supportive and friendly. Being an integral part of a rural centre of healthcare excellence, we are always striving for improvement.

Our three community mental health teams provide a range of services, including:                       

            Alcohol and Drug

            Methadone Programme

            Child and Adolescent

            Forensic Service

            Adult Community Mental Health

            Māori Mental Health

            Psychiatric Emergency Services


A range of community based mental health support services are provided by non- government organisations (NGO's) including Level III and IV residential beds and activity/vocational services.
