Supporting Youth Wellbeing in South Canterbury

We can meet you at home, at school, at our workplace or out on a walk somewhere you enjoy. All of our services are funded by the Ministry of Health, 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 be the best fit for you so feel free to give us a call if you would prefer to have a chat. Otherwise register for our services online and provide us with as much information as possible. If we think there is another service that would be better suited within the community, we can help to put you in touch with them.
