New Zealand’s youth mental healthcare continues to experience a rolling crisis with long waiting times for services.

Key Points: 
  • New Zealand’s youth mental healthcare continues to experience a rolling crisis with long waiting times for services.
  • There have been calls to expand the mental health workforce and to diversify the range of available services.
  • As our research shows, it can help to shorten bulging waiting lists and retain staff in the workforce.

Training is necessary, but not sufficient

  • These are often talking therapies that have been proven effective for most people through research studies such as clinical trials.
  • Many mental health services deliver therapies based on dialectical behaviour therapy to help young people and adults improve their emotional regulation.
  • There will always be a need to develop and adapt therapies, but a central challenge is better implementation of those we already have.

Better implementation of proven therapies

  • It studies methods to enhance the adoption, implementation and sustained delivery of evidence-based practices to improve the quality of routine care.
  • Rather than asking tired clinicians to do more, implementation science can identify the influences on clinician behaviour and target supports accordingly.
  • Implementation science teaches us that providing guidelines or training in evidence-based therapy is necessary, but often not enough to achieve quality care.

Quality in action

  • Their aim is to promote national standards for care quality in partnership with whānau, consumers and local communities.
  • Beyond mental health, apparently simple solutions such as surgical checklists have been shown to substantially improve quality, even in resource-limited settings.
  • Service leaders, funders and policymakers must urgently consider how we can best equip existing and new staff to deliver quality care, based on insights from implementation science.
