In Southland our family/whanau support workers help the family of young people recovering from mental illness, by providing information on mental health and how best to support their loved one. Our support workers help families/whanau adapt to their family member’s illness. They also provide advocacy for the family.


“Honestly, if it wasn’t for an organisation like [Pact], there would be a lot of caregivers and parents who would reach the end of their tether.”
