Advice and Information Hub

Mental health challenges are common and affect whānau throughout New Zealand. Our advice and information hub is here to help.

Our family mental health hub contains mental health resources to support you and your whānau. You can learn about different mental health conditions, join inspiring webinars and download a range of wellbeing guides from here.

If you are supporting a whānau member who is using mental health services or is receiving compulsory treatment, our family rights resources can help you.

You can also learn how to support someone experiencing suicidal distress and find out more about our suicide postvention support services.

How you can help prevent suicide

We know that for some of the whānau we support, part of the journey can be significant suicidal distress.

Read our suicide prevention brochure to learn how to support someone in suicidal distress and how we can support you and your family mental health.

After suicide support services for whānau

The death of a loved one is one of life’s most difficult experiences and losing someone to suicide is particularly traumatic, with its own set of unique challenges. 

Our whānau support workers have had the experience of losing a loved one to suicide and can navigate the complex journey with you. Find out more in our suicide support services brochure.
