Tiaho Mai Service Goes Smokefree

Counties Manukau DHB has announced that there will be entirely no smoking in the buildings and on the grounds of their acute mental-health service, Tiaho Mai from 31 May 2012

What does this mean for Consumers/Tangata Whaiora?

• Pre-planning in the event of a Tiaho Mai stay regarding your
nicotine needs

• Free nicotine patches, gum/lozenges to help with cravings

• Information and education before your stay in Tiaho Mai

• In the event of a stay in Tiaho Mai you will be asked to hand in:

  • Lighters
  • Matches
  • Tobacco
  • Herbal cigarettes
  • Pipes
  • Cigarette papers and filters

Any items you hand in or are removed will be safely stored until you leave Tiaho Mai

Tiaho Mai invites consumers/tangata whaiora to become involved in the planning for this change.

If you would like to discuss this further or become involved please approach your Keyworker or Community Support Worker.
