    Needs Assessment & Service Co-Ordination

    Synergy Wellness is a mental health needs assessment and service co-ordination service (NASC). We work with people experiencing disability as a result of a significant mental health issue, for which there is treatment provided by a suitably qualified practitioner. 

    Needs Assessment:
    This is the stage we gather information from you and others involved (such as family/whanau, health professionals) in order to understand your situation and help you figure out what support you need. We will write a report that summarises your strengths and challenges, aspirations and needs.

    Service Co-Ordination:
    This involves discussing support options with you, making suggestions about what might be helpful, and making referrals to support services of your choice that match the needs we identify.

    We can arrange government funded supports from a range of services for you – these include community support, household management, personal care, carer support, planned respite and supported accommodation; depending on what you need.

    We will keep working on your support package until you are happy with it.

    Follow Up:
    Synergy Wellness will keep working with you for as long as you need; there is no set timeframe.

    We will try as hard as possible to find supports that meet your needs, but this may not always be possible. We highlight any unmet needs with the Southern District Health Board Mental Health, Addictions and Intellectual Disability Directorate.
