Who better to support you in your recovery than someone who has been there themselves.

Our attention is on the empowerment and development of the individual, encouraging self care through individual and group activities and recovery education. We focus on the growth of our relationships. This approach means we should see a movement away from professional service relationships towards the development of relationships found in healthy communities.

Balance Whanganui empowers people by helping them understand their rights.

Advocacy is integrated into our peer support as we represent mental health service users and viewpoints local and throughout the national region.
