Te Huringa: Mental Health and Addiction Service Monitoring Reports 2022
Te Huringa 2022 was our first mental health services and addiction services monitoring report. It shows the performance of mental health services and addiction services between 2016-2017 and 2020-2021. The report covers mental health services and addiction services funded by the public health system, including:
- Primary mental health services and addiction services that are provided within a general practice including general practitioner (GP) or nurse consultations, psychological interventions, cognitive behavioural therapy, medication reviews, counselling, other psychosocial interventions and group therapy.
- Specialist mental health services and addiction services for people experiencing moderate to severe mental illness or psychological distress. This includes acute inpatient services, community-based services, talking therapies, and forensic services.
The report shows that there has been little evidence of improvement in services or changes in wait times for specialist mental health services over the past five years. Wait times for young people to access specialist mental health services continue to be well below target and wait times for addiction services have increased over the past five years.
Despite calls in 2018 from He Ara Oranga to minimise coercive treatment, our measures show an increase in the use of solitary confinement (seclusion) and no decrease in the use of community treatment orders.
