    Needs Assessment and Service Coordination

    Needs assessment is a process of identifying what supports you require to live a fulfilling life in the community. Assessments are completed in partnership with your Southern DHB MHAID Service key worker/case manager and the support people of your choice. Needs assessment aims to identify your areas of need and provide a coordinated approach to accessing the necessary support services

    Service coordination is the process of agreeing on the best mix of services to support you in your current situation.
