Nelson DHB urged to keep youth mental health service

From Morning Report, 7:44 am on 1 May 2018

A Nelson teenager is leading the charge to keep what she says is a vital youth mental health service running 24 hours a day. The Nelson-Marlborough District Health Board is planning to axe the after-hours service of its Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, and move it to the adult crisis team. Zoe Palmer, who's been an outpatient of the service for the past five years, says experience tells her the time of greatest need is when alone at night.
