Kaupapa Māori Mental Health & Wellbeing Services

Are you experiencing issues affecting your mental health or wellbeing? Or does someone in your whānau need help? 

We are here to help.

We support whānau to get well, stay well, live well, and reach for the stars and beyond.

Combining clinical, cultural, and community support that embrace the Māori view of wellbeing, our services are provided to all ages at no cost, and continue to grow and expand to meet the needs of whānau.

Referrals to most of our services can be made by anyone (e.g. self referral, referral by whānau/friend, referral by a professional such as GP).
