The Midland Region Mental Health and Addiction regional plans have been developed through an extensive engagement process involving key stakeholders from each of the districts within the Midland region: Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Lakes, Tairawhiti and Taranaki.  Consumers, families, Maori, Pacific, providers, clinical leaders and funders have given freely of their time and knowledge.  We sincerely appreciate the goodwill and energy that all participants have contributed during the development phase and know this commitment will continue into the implementation phase.  We are confident that the vibrancy of the Midland Region Mental Health and Addiction sector will ensure all of the regional plan's success. 

This page has been developed to hold all of the Midland Regions key documents and project progress updates.

Workforce Strategic Plan 2015 - 2018

In December 2012 the Mental Health Commission (MHC) released the Blueprint II and the Ministry of Health (MoH) released the Mental Health and Addiction Service Development Plan (SDP), “Rising to the Challenge”. The impetus of both documents for mental health and addiction services is to increase national consistency focusing on access, service quality and outcomes for people who use services for their whanau and for the communities that they live in. Both documents set a service development pathway with clear actions and expectations for the next five years.
