Welcome to the Northern Region SF Family/Whanau Support Teams pages.You will find our local offices in each of the Northern Region DHB areas, although we are in fact one organisation: Supporting Families in Mental Illness Auckland Inc.

Our teams in Northland, Waitemata, Auckland and Counties Manukau are managed centrally from our Regional Office in Grey Lynn, Auckland, and you may either contact us there on 09 378 9134, email or contact your local office directly (see Regional Branches on left menu)

We staff our phone service in Auckland 8:30am-5:00pm Monday to Friday with a message facility if busy or after hours 09 378 9134.

Supporting Families offers free mental health and addiction support to family / whānau supporting a loved one. Our service provides education, information, advocacy, workshops, support groups, face to face / telephone support, a website, as well as supporting workforce development.
We run our services from an old villa, a fascinating building that is unique. When you enter the office, you will find different funky motif wallpaper in each room. The staff will give you a warm welcome and introduce you to the villa. There is also easy access to on-road car parking, out front and in the side road. In this building, families / whānau / carers meet their fieldworker and other family members for support and networking.
If you would like more information, or you’re not sure and would just like to talk to someone contact one of our friendly staff on our 0800 732 825.

Support Groups

Auckland Support Group

Join us and others who face similar challenges, to learn and to share experiences, to exchange information and resources, and to learn different strategies in dealing with the needs of our loved one and ourselves.

The topic on the meeting will be varied from month to month according to the needs of the family / whānau members.  Sometimes, the team invites guest speakers-Health Professionals with different skills to sharing their knowledge in providing more information, resources and skills to the family / whānau members.

The team is welcoming input and suggestions from family / whānau members in regards to better improvement and outcomes in organising the Support Group meeting and also to inform interested topics to discuss in the meeting.

The team also welcome Health Professionals who would like to share their expertise in their area of work to improve the community mental wellbeing to meet SF Family / Whānau members.

Please contact us to discuss further.
