Mental health service stretched to capacity

Mental health service stretched to capacity
Mental health services are being stretched to capacity in Northland due to a sharp increase in the number of people using them.
Along with that increase, staff safety has been identified as an issue at the Tumanako Inpatient Unit at Whangarei Hospital. Over the last five years assaults on mental health staff accounted for 101 of 153 total staff assaults, equating to two out of three.
