4 Our services Pathways offers a range of services in the Auckland region, based in Counties Manukau, Auckland, Waitakere, North Shore and Rodney. In the Auckland region, you have probably been referred to one of our Pathways services either by yourself, through your GP, or from a community mental health team at either Counties Manukau, Auckland or Waitemata District Health Board. The referral would have been made to the service that they believe will best meet your needs. Following is a summary of the types of services we offer at Pathways. Mobile wellbeing support Residential based recovery Wellbeing respite Wellbeing programmes 2
5 Wellbeing respite Mobile wellbeing support Our mobile wellbeing support services bring the support to you. We visit you at your house or somewhere else in the community on a regular basis, to support your wellbeing. We ll talk with you regularly about what you need support with and how much support you need. Some people we see just once a week, others who need a higher level of support, we see every day. It s about tailoring your support to your needs. We can support you with things like: identifying your goals and helping you to achieve them practical daily living getting involved in the community pursuing a healthy lifestyle finding training or a job. Pathways wellbeing respites offer welcoming, home-like environments where you can have a short break when you need it, to rest and focus completely on your wellbeing. Like a retreat, they are places you can call home for a while and recharge your batteries. You might use our wellbeing respites as a planned break away when you re struggling with life at home. Or as a transition from, or instead of, time in hospital. Staff at the wellbeing respite will support you through the day and night, providing a listening ear, supporting you to take your medication and preparing meals. How long you stay varies. Usually it s just a few days, but at some of our services people may stay for a few weeks. It s all about what you need. In Auckland, we have wellbeing respites in Auckland and Counties Manukau. In the Auckland region, we provide mobile wellbeing support across all districts.
6 Residential based recovery Our residential based recovery services provide homes in the community where our staff are onsite to support you during the day and night. You may be sharing a house or have a separate unit in a group of units. The staffing levels vary in each site depending on what support people need. If you re living in in one of our residential based recovery services, we ll support you in your daily living in whatever ways you need. One of our services caters for people with high physical health needs. Our residential recovery services are about supporting you towards living independently. They are a stepping stone towards moving into your own home and living well in the community. How long you stay will depend on your needs. Wellbeing programmes Our wellbeing programmes are based around activities and learning opportunities. They are designed to help you develop skills to manage your own wellbeing and help you to live well in the local community. Our wellbeing programmes are based in retreat-like environments where you can feel safe, relaxed and open to new experiences. They include activities like yoga, art, healthy cooking and nutrition, music, physical exercise, and programmes to help you get back into the workplace. Usually you would attend a wellbeing programme during working hours for around four weeks, but this can vary depending on your needs. In Auckland we have wellbeing programmes located in Manukau. In Auckland we have residential recovery services located in Mangere, Papakura/ Takanini and Franklin. 4
7 Youth services Real, the youth brand of Pathways, has been delivering services in some parts of New Zealand since Real believes mental wellness and wellbeing are possible for every young person. We support young people to build resilience and wellbeing in youth oriented, flexible and optimistic ways. Our community services focus on mental illness prevention and our respite services support young people with more serious mental health needs. We help young people feel great by supporting them to build life skills, resilience and strong connections with their whānau, friends and communities.

This is your plan and it can be in any form you like. It could be a journal or dream book, a mind map or an action plan - whatever works best for you. Our Pathways whānau Your dedicated support worker is part of a bigger team of Pathways people that are there for you. They include support workers, healthy lifestyle coordinators, occupational therapists, social workers, nurses, management and administration support. Many of our staff have experience of mental illness themselves. Some of our teams include peer support specialists - people who have had specialist training in how to use their experience of mental illness to help others on their recovery journey. All of our staff are here to listen and to help you. Your support network Anyone you choose can be involved in your recovery journey and goal planning like your family, whānau or friends.

10 What s important to us? Your total wellbeing We know your recovery will be faster and more successful if you focus on living well in all areas of your life, not just your mental health. That s why our Being Well strategy plays a big part in shaping how we work. It s about eating well, connecting well, working well, being active, and being physically and spiritually well. We ll actively encourage and support you to be healthier, with things like: quit smoking programmes exercise programmes and sports days participation in community events healthy eating advice and help social gatherings supporting regular physical health checks connecting to other health services. We ll also give you the opportunity to tell us how satisfied you are with different areas of your life through the use of our quality of life questionnaires. 8
11 Wellbeing is not a medical fix but a way of living - a lifestyle sensitive and responsive to all the dimensions of body, mind, and spirit, an approach to life we each design to achieve our highest potential for wellbeing now and forever. Greg Anderson 9
12 Recovery, hope and respect We genuinely believe everyone can recover. Hope and respect are at the heart of everything we do and we want to help you draw on your own inner strength and hopes for the future. We value diversity and recognise that you come to our service with your own culture, beliefs and practices. It is important to us that you always feel respected and culturally safe. Recognising trauma We realise that trauma in your life may have played a part in you becoming unwell, so we ll try to recognise the impacts that trauma may have had on you. We re committed to doing everything we can to ensure you don t experience any further trauma from being involved with our services. Focusing on strengths and resilience We re more interested in focusing on your strengths than your problems or diagnoses. We want to support you to develop those strengths, grow positive experiences, and identify opportunities for development and sustainable change. 10
13 The importance of a home, a job and being connected Having a home, and a job if you want to work, are both important parts of your recovery. Both help to give you a sense of belonging and accomplishment that can help you feel more positive and in a healthier frame of mind. Having a job also helps you pay the bills and gives you more options to enjoy life. We work with Workwise Employment Agency, Keys Social Housing and other organisations if you need help finding a home or finding or keeping a job that s right for you. It s also important that you re connected with other services you need to feel fully supported in your recovery. We work with Linkage to help you make these connections and get all the support you need. 11
