Able Minds facilitates Activity Centres and Peer Support Groups for Tangata Whaiora in a community-based environment.

These are formalised group sessions where those with mental distress and addiction issues can come for peer support as well as actively focus on their recovery by learning new skills to build self-esteem and confidence both on and off site.

These groups are proven to get results and are led by our Coordinators and Peer Support Workers to reconnect people back into the community.

Dunedin Activity Centre can help by:

  • exploring opportunities for community participation
  • developing goals that focus on community integration
  • providing on-going support and motivation

Operating five days a week from 9am - 3pm with a range of onsite and off-site activities.

Some of our past activities/groups are:

  • cooking skills
  • computer skills
  • keep fit
  • carpentry skills
  • community outing
  • art and craft activities
