Intersectoral Agencies

Intersectoral agencies play an important part in supporting the mental health and addictions sector. While they are not specialist providers of services, their clientele is often made up of mental health and/or addiction consumers and their families.

Consumers and their families often come into contact with many of these organisations out of necessity and sometimes desperation. Intersectoral groups provide invaluable support to the mental health and addictions sector in their statutory roles and also as a provider of support and advocacy services.

Intersectoral agencies are members of the Future Directions Southland Mental Health and Addictions Network which represents the strategic and working relationship that the different sectors share.
