What is a Wellbeing Support Group?

Wellbeing groups provide a safe and inclusive therapeutic space for participants to learn tools and techniques to improve wellbeing.

Group members participate at their own pace, and there is no expectation to share information they are not comfortable with, although often participants do find it helpful to share their experiences and learnings.

All groups are confidential and are led by qualified facilitators who are committed to the process of improving wellbeing.

Comments from Past Groups Participants……

“If it wasn’t for this support it scares me to think where we would be today”

“What a revelation for me to realise that there were other people who were feeling just like me. I was not alone.”

“Joining a group is the best thing I have done."

* Many of our groups are free with a referral from a GP or health professional e.g. counsellor, nurse, social worker - see brochure for details.

* Participants must be 18 years or over and either live in the WDHB catchment area or access health services in the area.
