Jobs across Maori mental health in Marlborough have been cut from 14 to six as part of the Te Rapuora service's closure.

Nelson Marlborough District Health Board Maori health director Harold Wereta said yesterday there were eight [fulltime equivalent] jobs across Maori mental health.

Six of those were based in Marlborough - two in alcohol and drug services, two adult community support workers, one child and youth community support worker and one clinical specialist.

Nelson-based health provider Te Kahui Hauora O Ngati Koata will be the lead provider of kaupapa Maori mental health in the region after December 31.

That service will be supported by Te Hauora O Te Awhina in Motueka.
