Piringa is part of the G6, a sector cluster of non-profit mental health and residential providers working in the Rotorua Lakes District
The G6 was formed by the Residential Mental Health NGO sector of Rotorua primarily for the purpose of sharing the workload to ensure compliance with National Mental Health Standards.
This purpose was met, however, throughout this process relationships were established and the G6 group soon become an excellent resource beyond the original purpose.
Members are committed to working together to provide integrated, coordinated, effective delivery of services promoting the well being of our Tangata Whaiora.
We operate with a view to the future, a future which encourages hope, self-reliance, community integration and promotes mental health awareness.
