Supporting Families In Mental Illness Auckland (NZ)
Recovery is often perceived to be something that the person with an
illness goes through in their journey to wellness. However, families,
whanau and friends often need their own process of recovery after
interaction with and support of a loved one with mental illness.

Information The Coping Kete

Supporting Families In Mental Illness New Zealand
- New Zealanders affected by mental illness put up with a lot more than
their symptoms - such as stigma and discrimination, lack of access to
effective treatment and support and little or no help for family/whanau
and friends. It doesn't have to be like this. The Supporting Families In
Mental Illness NZ Charter sets our four core principles which provide a
vision for a better life for New Zealanders with mental illness. Help
for family/whanau and friends; an end to stigma and discrimination;
access to effective treatments; support in the community.
