WellSouth provides a single point of entry for former refugees in the Dunedin and Invercargill areas to access mental health support.

GP referrals are triaged centrally by WellSouth in order to connect individuals with the most appropriate service for their needs. Mental health support may then be provided directly by WellSouth or by another local DHB or community based mental health service.
