Mental Health and Addiction Support for Families and Whānau Family and whānau need access to services that support and enhance their wellbeing. We recognise and build on the resilience of family and whānau, understanding and affirming their experience of supporting someone with mental health and/or addiction concerns. We provide information, advocacy and support. We are also able to support children through a specialised children’s programme. Cultural support is available to family and whānau.
