Supporting Youth Wellbeing in Southland

We can meet you wherever you are. All of our youth counselling and mental health services are funded by the Ministry of Health, District Health Board or the Ministry of Social Development which makes them completely free for you to access. Even if you are not sure that this is for you, get in touch or come along to meet us and check us out. 

It can be hard sometimes to know which service would fit you / your friend / family member best so give us a call to discuss potential referrals. If we think there is another service that would be a better fit for you we can help to put you in touch with them.
