Te Hiringa Mahara has published a Youth services focus report - Admissions of young people to adult inpatient mental health services. This report is the first in a series of mental health and addiction service monitoring reports (Te Huringa Tuarua) they are releasing this year.
This report examines the trends in admitting young people aged 12 to 17 years to adult inpatient mental health services in New Zealand and reflects on perspectives gained from discussions with young people, whānau and family.
The Te Huringa Tuarua series focuses on youth services, Compulsory Community Treatment Orders, Kaupapa Māori Services, and mental health and addiction services.
For more information and to read the report see Te Huringa Tuarua: Mental Health and Addiction Service Monitoring Reports 2023.
