Regional workshops: mental health and addiction quality improvement programme

Mental health & addiction quality improvement
07 August 2017  - 30 August 2017
9:30 AM  - 3:00 PM
Auckland, Rotorua, Palmerston North, Christchurch.

Do you have an interest in improving the quality of our mental health and addiction services?

The new mental health and addiction (MHA) quality improvement programme will see consumers and health agencies working together to continue to improve mental health services so people get the best care.

Regional MHA programme workshops being held in August are an opportunity to have input into the new five-year programme.

Who should attend?

Anyone with an interest in improving the quality of our mental health and addiction services, including consumers and whānau along with all providers of MHA services is welcome to attend the one-day workshops. We are hoping to have representation of consumers, peers, tāngata whaiora, whānau / family members, Māori, Pacific peoples, PHOs, NGOs, DHBs, people working in planning and funding and quality, and data and information analysts from across the mental health and addiction sector.

We look forward to engaging with participants about national and regional priorities and how we can best work together to improve services and outcomes for all.
