Welcome to Platform Trust
Platform champions community organisations that support New Zealanders by providing a wide range of mental health and addiction services across the country and creating a positive place for people experiencing mental health and addiction issues to live and work.
On Track is the sector’s response to implementing the changes proposed in the Ministry of Health’s Rising to the Challenge and Blueprint II strategies. It aims to provide a robust evidence base to direct the system change required to better meet the needs of New Zealanders experiencing mental illness and addiction.
NZ Navigator is a free online tool to allow organisations to self-assess their current status on the core functions of an effective organisation.
Platform supports the Equally Well movement promoting the need for equitable physical health outcomes for people experiencing mental illness and addiction.
