Equip provides a range of services that help people who experience mental health issues. We can provide varying amounts of support, and in most cases, our service can come to you.
We work as a team to support you to maintain what is already working in your lives, as well as providing support to achieve your goals, celebrate your successes and make barriers easier to get around.
We are committed to using evidence based practices and all staff are trained and supervised in the use of the tools of Professor Charles Rapp's Strengths Model.
In most of the services the hours of support can be flexible and adjusted from week to week. Our team will work with you to access essential resources within your community to increase your opportunities and choices.
Support Workers work closely with clinical key worker and / or whānau family where appropriate. Recovery, hope and an improved quality of life are more likely to occur when services and people who use them, work together.
Equip is committed to providing evidence based best practice in mental health support. We regularly collate and review outcomes of the work that is being done and adjust the way we support people in response to this feedback from people and their families using the service.
Some of the extra services we offer are:
• Dietician support – Equip has a registered Dietician who is available to meet with you to help with managing weight and eating well on a limited budget
• Housing Facilitator – we have a designated Housing Facilitator who assists people to find and secure private and affordable accommodation
• Spirituality Co-ordinator – this is an opportunity to get assistance to find a spiritual home in the community of your choice and to explore your own spirituality in whatever way works for you
