We are a Kaupapa Māori Service providing specialist mental health and addiction services to children/tamariki, youth/rangatahi and their whānau/family.

  • We work to support you, your family and your friends during times when problems like these become too much for you to manage on your own
  • You'll be given a team who will help you recognise the things you are good at doing and how you can use these strengths to grow
  • We provide awhi and support to help you learn ways to cope with tough stuff that can make you feel low, worried, hurt and alone
  • We'll also connect you, your whānau/family and supports/friends with other community services, as appropriate
  • And we'll work to meet your specific cultural needs, taking the time to listen, get to know you and help you to feel well supported.
