Family Connections programme

Are you supporting a family whānau member who has a borderline personality disorder (BPD) or is experiencing severe emotion dysregulation (SED)?

If so, the Family Connections programme could help you.

Stepping Out for Women: A self-development course

We understand that supporting a loved one with a mental illness is very challenging. Often women put all their own needs on hold when doing so.

We’re here to help you begin a journey of self-discovery that will assist you in reconnecting with who you really are.

How can Supporting Families NZ help you?

We can provide a range of support, information, education and advocacy services for your family whānau.

Find out more about our nationwide services in this Supporting Families NZ services brochure.

Being in the moment: An introduction to mindfulness

If you’re supporting a loved one with mental health challenges, your stress levels can rise to harmful levels.

Mindfulness can help you develop inner skills that enable you to manage worries and stress (thoughts and emotions) more easily.

Letting Anxiety Go

Are you concerned a loved one may be experiencing anxiety?

While some level of anxiety is normal, it can be too high for us to get on with everyday life and can develop into an anxiety disorder. We’re here to help you and your loved ones get the anxiety support they need.

Refresh, restore & thrive: A guide to better self-care

When was the last time you really thought about your wellbeing? Could you take better care of yourself?

It might sound indulgent, but taking time to practice self-care can make meaningful and lasting changes to your health. It enables you to make the most of each day.

How you can help prevent suicide

We know that for some of the families and whānau we support, part of the journey can be significant suicidal distress.

Read this brochure to find out more about how you can support someone in suicidal distress and how we can support you.

After suicide support services for families and whānau

The death of a loved one is one of life’s most difficult experiences and losing someone to suicide is particularly traumatic, with its own set of unique challenges.

Our family whānau support workers have had the experience of losing a loved one to suicide and can navigate the complex journey with you.

Thriving through later life: mental health services for older people

Whether you’re concerned about an older loved one experiencing anxiety or depression, or showing other signs of mental distress, we can support you.

By working together we can help your older loved ones thrive.

Lifting the dark cloud: A guide to understanding & healing depression

Depression can leave those it affects, including family, feeling very isolated and unsupported. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

We’re here to help you and your loved ones get the depression support they need.

Helping children cope: A guide to help children understand mental illness

Are you worried about what to say to your children (tamariki/rangatahi) about your mental health issues, or that of other family whānau members?

Do you feel your children may need more support? We’re here to help you and your children/tamariki get the support and encouragement they need.

Big feelings!

This resource guide for parents and caregivers helps their tamariki and rangatahi manage their emotions.

By learning to self-regulate, tamariki and rangatahi can become more able to develop higher self-esteem, confidence, and resilience.

Grow, learn, build & flourish with our Growth Programme!

The Growth Programme supports tamariki/rangatahi (children/adolescents) who are experiencing challenges at home, school, socially, personally, and/or as a family whānau member.

This innovative programme is used as a 1-on-1 tool for individual support with our Programme Leaders. Read this brochure to find out more about the programme and how it can help you.

Prepping for an epic future!

This resource accompanies our Growth Programme and helps your tamariki/rangatahi work on their Growth Mindsets to develop resilience, self-management, self-esteem and confidence.
