The Regional Rangatahi Adolescent Inpatient Service (RRAIS) is the acute adolescent inpatient unit for the central region. The service is for youth aged 12 to 17 who are experiencing acute mental health problems. We provide a bicultural service based on Kaupapa Māori frameworks and mainstream clinical models.
Referrals are accepted from local child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS) or a child and adolescent psychiatrist.
Visiting hours are week days from 4pm to 8pm and weekends from 10am to 5pm.
There is provision for whānau overnight accommodation for visitors outside of the Wellington region.
