Q-Nique Ltd | Mental Health Services

By: Q-nique  05-Apr-2012

Our adult Mental Health Services are provided for people who are over 18 years of age and who are under the care of Community Mental Health Services in the Hutt Valley District Health Board and Capital and Coast District Health Board areas.

We know that recovery can be dependent on support, and Q-nique staff focus on providing appropriate support and on building on each individual’s strengths.

We provide practical support around each person’s day to day needs such as having a good house, or work, supportive social relationships, and where required assisting with relationship or family issues or reconciliation, education and leisure pursuits and all those things that make all the difference to living well.

Community Support Service

The Community Support Service assists people in their own home or in the community setting to meet their social and basic living needs. Contact with Support Workers will vary according to individual needs.

Community Support Services for Youth

This service is for young people aged from 12 to 18 years in the Hutt Valley District Health Board area who require support with mental health, alcohol or other drug related issues. This service provides young people (and the family or significant others as agreed) with one on one or group/family support. We can also provide advocacy or liaison services.

If an individual or family needs additional support we can refer you to other appropriate services.

How do I access these services?

Referral can be made by individuals (self referral), a health professional, a family member or by a significant other such as a friend.

Planned Respite Care

From time to time a person’s situation means they need a break from their own routine. Q-nique provides the opportunity to take planned time out to recharge and help get back to everyday living.

The Planned Respite Service is provided in a five bedroom Home/Whare located in Lower Hutt. This service supports individuals or a couple to take time out from their usual residence.

There is a staff member on site during the day and an on call system is available after hours for anyone who may need assistance.

How do I access these services?

All referrals must be made by the community mental health teams or relevant District Health Board Case Manager through Mental Health Service Coordination.

Long-term Residential Home for Older People

This service is for older people in the Hutt Valley District Health Board area who are no longer able to live independently at home. We have a five bedroom Home/Whare located in Lower Hutt which is staffed 24 hours a day.
Residents are supported to maintain and maximize their independence and are encouraged and supported to maintain their wellbeing through community social and in-house activities.

For some people this residential-based support may be a critical step towards independent living.
