Are you supporting a whānau member experiencing mental health challenges?
We provide mental health support for families and can help you.
Formerly Supporting Families NZ, we’re Yellow Brick Road; a national organisation that provides mental health support for families who have a loved one experiencing mental health challenges.
After 40 years of experience working with people around New Zealand, we know that if the family of a loved one experiencing mental distress are correctly supported and empowered, the path they walk leads to increased wellbeing for the whole whānau.
We will walk alongside any family in New Zealand who needs support, knowledge, advocacy and empowerment as they journey towards mental wellbeing.
If you are concerned about a family member experiencing mental health challenges, we can help you.

How we are making a difference
Our purpose is to inspire and equip whānau to restore themselves, by supporting their journeys from a place of distress to one of mental wellbeing.
We’re not just in the business of building resilience. We actively walk alongside the people we support, through all their challenges till the wellbeing of their whānau is restored.
We make a difference by providing support, information, education and advocacy services, including:
- 1-on-1 and group support sessions
- Innovative mental health and wellbeing programmes for adults, tamariki and rangatahi.
- Advocacy, for when whānau find it difficult to access the services they need.
- Family peer support groups
- Suicidal distress & postvention support
Every dollar helps New Zealand families thrive
Make a difference today and help whānau get the mental health support they need.
