Open Community Groups

No referral required

He Waka Tapu is now offering Whai Rawatia te Oranga | Open Community Groups.

Health is wealth and you’ll be amazed at how you might be able to address the bigger stressors in life when your hauora is strengthened. Accessing these can support you to understand your behaviours around alcohol and drug use, keeping your whānau safe, and strengthening your well-being. No referral is required!

Groups are designed to strengthen your hauora (health and well-being) and aim to:

  • Declutter your headspace
  • Build your connections within hapori
  • Strengthen your Tinana
  • Support practical everyday living

After a few sessions, you might be ready to address the heavy stuff and request a referral to a programme, or you may find you have learnt other ways to gain an understanding of the behaviours that are causing negativity in your life.
