Promoting mental health, demystifying mental illness, countering stigma and discrimination

Non Government Service Providers

Nau mai, haere mai, welcome to this Non Government Service Providers section.

This section has been developed with the support of a wide variety of Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) providing services for people and family/Whanau effected by mental illness and closely follows the format of The Taranaki Mental Health Sector Directory

Currently the Taranaki District Health Board Mental Health Addictions Service manage to provide clinical support for almost 3% of the acutely ill in Taranaki.

The remainder of those experiencing mental illness are cared for and supported very largely by their G.P.'s, counsellors, family/whanau and community groups.

A number of the agencies below have direct links to their own local/national website.
