This Request for Proposals (RFP) is an invitation to Pacific-led Organisations to submit a Proposal for the provision of Pacific Primary Mental Health and Addiction Services within the following geographic areas:
• Auckland
• Counties Manukau
• Hawkes Bay
• Hutt Valley
• Capital and Coast
• Southern

For the purposes of this RFP, Pacific-led Organisations must have a predominantly Pacific ethnicity membership on their Governance Board/Trust Board; and a significant proportion of their workforce be of Pacific ethnicity. The organisations may be non-government organisations (NGOs), PHOs, companies and any other legal entities.
The primary mental health and addiction service needs to address the needs of Pacific People who are experiencing mild to moderate levels of distress by providing a range of supports and services including evidence informed therapy, assessment and treatment services as well as talking therapies; self-management support and psycho-education; culturally specific interventions; peer support; and access to social supports. The services may be delivered from community-based settings that are easily accessible and acceptable to Pacific people (e.g. Pacific community centres, Churches, other health and social services, schools, sports clubs).

Culturally appropriate services need to be easily accessible, provide a range of options for support, and be able to seamlessly connect Pacific people to other relevant NGOs, cultural, social and health supports, primary care and secondary services as and when needed. Services are also required to meet the developmental needs of Pacific young people and their families (where appropriate).
