HiNZ eHealthNews: Use of eMental health increases as industry calls for national hub

HiNZ eHealthNews editor Rebecca McBeth

Use of telehealth and digital tools to provide mental health support is increasing, however not all people can access these supports easily, a new report says.

In response to “Te Huringa: Change and Transformation. Mental Health Service and Addiction Service Monitoring Report 2022" industry body NZHIT is calling for the development of a national digital mental health and addictions support hub to ease pressure on the mental health and addictions system.

The Mental Health and Wellbeing Commission has released the report which monitors the performance of mental health services and addictions services between 2016/2017 and 2020/2021.
