Respite for people with serious mental illness and/or addictions in the Bay of Plenty
Here in the Bay of Plenty, we want to offer tangata whaiora and their whānau respite services that are flexible and responsive, framed around their needs and wishes, planned and intentional, with a focus on recovery and wellbeing. This service provider(s) will partner with the Bay of Plenty District Health Board (BOPDHB) Mental Health and Addiction Services and others within the sector to offer a range of respite options for people with serious mental health issues and/or addictions. We would like to engage providers who use a Kaupapa Māori approach and/or focus on peer-led services. The agreement will be outcomes-based with respite with the aim being that respite is viewed as a positive experience for both tangata whaiora and their whānau.
The Bay of Plenty District Health Board funds and provides health services from Te Kaha to Waihi Beach and west to Murupara. The BOPDHB's Mental Health and Addictions Services operate from Tauranga and Whakatane, offering specialist services and inpatient facilities. There are a number and variety of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that provide community-based mental health and addiction services across the Bay of Plenty based on agreements with BOPDHB's Te Teo Herenga Waka (Planning, funding, service improvement and performance).
The closing date for receipt of Proposals is 4.30pm on 19 April 2018.
