Almost half of all New Zealanders will experience mental health and/or addiction distress at some point in their lives, and general practice teams are often the first place a person will turn to for help. In fact, it is estimated at least 30 per cent of GP consultations are mental health related.
Pinnacle Midlands Health Network's primary mental health service provides access to a range of services that support patients with mild to moderate mental health concerns.
