Supporting Youth Wellbeing in Central Lakes

We are a mobile service using community hubs/centres to meet you in the area you are living. However, we do also have an office located in Cromwell and can meet you there too if preferred. 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, call or email us to get some more information to help you decide.
