The Ministry of Health has released for stakeholder consultation a document titled Rising to the Challenge: The Mental Health and Addiction Service Development Plan 2012–2017.

The Plan incorporates key themes from Blueprint II and advances the Government’s focus on efficiency and outcomes.

Your input is important. You don’t have to comment on everything. You could pick one section that is important to you and provide feedback on that. Each section is only a few pages long and details how the ministry proposes to implement each of their identified actions. You can help them get it right.

The main sections in the report are:

  1. Actively using our current resources more effectively
  2. Building infrastructure for integration between primary and specialist services
    • Plans include a central store of information about your mental-health and addictions history that is electronically available to all healthcare clinicians involved in any aspect of your healthcare
  3. Cementing and building on gains in resilience and recovery for those most vulnerable and for people with low-prevalence conditions and/or high needs
  4. Cementing and building on gains in resilience and recovery for those most vulnerable and for other vulnerable population groups (Māori, Pacific peoples, refugees and asylum seekers, people with disabilities and those living under economic deprivation)
  5. Delivering increased access for all age groups while building resilience and averting future adverse outcomes for infants, children and youth
  6. Delivering increased access for all age groups while increasing service integration and effectiveness for adults with high-prevalence conditions
  7. Delivering increased access for all age groups while respecting and protecting the positive contribution of our growing older population
  8. Supporting and strengthening our workforce

Consultation workshops are being conducted around the country for the rest of October.
