Who better to support you in your recovery than someone who has been there themselves.
At Balance Whanganui, peer support provides role models in recovery and learning about hope-based approaches to mental health issues and life struggles. We encourage planning and acting in ways that aid recovery and wellness. Balance Whanganui also provides practical tools to regain wellness and reduce hospitalisations, such as the Wellness Resilience Action Planning (WRAP).
We aim at empowerment and development of the individual, encouraging self-care through individual and group activities and recovery education. We emphasise growing safe, healthy relationships
