Far North Services Added to Community Resources Directory

Mental-health recovery resources from the Far North were added to most sections of the Community Resources Directory on the Engage Aotearoa website on the 1st of March.

The directory is now nearly 70-pages long and the Far North sub-sections include services from Whangarei, Kerikeri, Kaikohe, Dargaville, Kawakawa and Kaitaia that can be used to promote recovery, including creative connections, psychologists and counsellors, support services and more.

Excerpts from Stories of Recovery from Being Suicidal are Now Live Online

The Butterfly Diaries creative book project is drawing close to completion.

The first three stories are now complete and excerpts are available for reading and sharing online. More samplers will be loaded as stories are finished.
