Collaboration in the mental health and addiction sector - infographic

To understand what makes collaborations successful, Te Pou and Platform Trust undertook a literature review to explore the values, behaviours and approaches of what this means for the workforce as well as developing collaborative organisations.

This infographic draws key insights from the literature review - Collaborative capability in the mental health and addiction sector.

The infographic identifies:

  • the cycle of collaboration – the why, how and what of collaboration
  • the values and behaviours of collaborative workers
  • the values and approaches of a collaborative organisation
  • the collaboration continuum – the relationships and structural characteristics along the collaboration continuum.
