It takes each of us to make a difference for all of us.

It’s whānau ora, and it is the foundation that inspires every aspect of our work.

We’re Yellow Brick Road – Supporting families towards mental wellbeing.

Yellow Brick Road is a national organisation that specialises in providing support for whānau who have a loved one experiencing mental health challenges.

We were previously called Supporting Families NZ and have changed our name to Yellow Brick Road.

Why have we changed our name?

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 want our support to inspire people and communities to start their journey along the road towards mental wellbeing, and for our name to reflect that journey.

Our vibrant new name and brand encompass that. They support our Kaupapa (purpose), our Uara (values) and our promise to New Zealand’s families in need.

We will be soft-launching Yellow Brick Road soon and, over the coming months, you will see our new brand come to the fore in our communications.  

We have exciting initiatives and fundraising events planned for our national rollout and look forward to sharing them with you. In the meantime, we welcome you to Yellow Brick Road – Supporting families towards mental wellbeing.

Our Kaupapa is to inspire and equip whānau to restore themselves, by supporting their journeys from a place of distress to one of mental wellbeing.

Together, let’s help whānau begin their recovery journey.
