Welcome to the Counties Manukau Mental Health and Addiction Services website. We have a range of career options across different settings for trained mental health professionals. Counties Manukau District Health Board is a place where the bonds of culture and care are strong, and where we are innovative in our approach to mental health and addiction service delivery. Our South Auckland population is fast growing and youthful, with a high proportion of Maori, Pacific and Asian people - a unique community to work in.

Innovative thinking is encouraged and nurtured, because we know that for our service users there's no such thing as one-size-fits-all. So, we're constantly evolving our practises and interventions and exploring new ways of working to make tangible differences in people's lives. For the right person, every day will offer you the chance to broaden your knowledge, skills and experience.

Non-Government Organisations (NGOs)

NGOs include independent community and Iwi/Maori organisations operating on a not-for-profit basis. They may receive government funding to provide specific services which add value to our community that is distinct from both government and the market.

At Counties Manukau we have a collaborative partnership forum for NGOs and District Health Board mental health services known as CHAMP (Counties Manukau Mental Health & Addiction Partnership).
