Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB) is seeking proposals from organisations that have the capacity and capability to provide a community based acute residential service for adults with acute mental health needs to offer an alternative experience to a hospital admission. Ideally the service will be peer led with nursing staff included in a team that can work in partnership with CDHB clinicians and demonstrate the efficacy of a new model for Canterbury people.
We require a provider or group of providers who have experience and/or expertise in delivering such a model of intensive mental health services for people with acute needs. The provider/s will need to demonstrate experience of implementing innovative approaches, collaborative work and responsiveness to the needs of Māori and other ethnicities.
