Supporting Youth Wellbeing in Otago

We can meet you at our office,  at school, at home or out for a walk. All of our services are funded by the District Health Board or the Ministry of Social Development which makes them completely free to you. It can be hard sometimes to know which service would fit you / your friend / family member so it may be best so give us a call to discuss. If we think there is another service that would be a better fit for you within our community we can also help to put you in touch with them.
