Therapeutic, peer-led or medical mental health supports and services can be an important part of our kete/toolkit to stay well, especially when we are experiencing uncertainty due to COVID-19. You might be looking at accessing these services for the first time, want to maintain your access to them or want to change things up to help manage any manawa pā/triggered thoughts and emotions you’re experiencing. 

We’ve had a lot of pātai/questions from people across Aotearoa about what supports and services are open, and how they’ve changed and what’s accessible during this time. With the help of people who’ve been through traumatic experiences in the past, peer support networks and our resource and information team, we’ve compiled some of the most common pātai and whakautu/answers we’ve come across.  

We acknowledge that due to digital inequities and inequalities in Aotearoa, not all people who need this parongo/information will be able to access it. If you know someone who is alone and cannot use a computer and/or phone, please consider printing, writing out or verbally sharing this information with them.
