The Integrated Psychological Therapies Pilot for 18 to 25 year olds, now known as Piki, provides support to young people aged 18 to 25 years who are experiencing mild to moderate mental health and addiction needs in the Greater Wellington Region.
Piki builds on an existing platform of services through service integration and partnership with existing providers, providing young people with single point of entry access to a range of support options including evidence-based face to face or distance therapy, peer support and connections to digital self-help tools and online support. Tū Ora Compass Health (Tū Ora) works in partnership with a range of local partners to deliver this service.
Piki was externally evaluated by the University of Otago. Along with the full report available here, the executive summary is available in the Expanding primary mental health and addiction support section on the Ministry of Health’s website.
