Our Purpose, To Provide a wide range of integrated services to all Maori and non Maori living within the Arowhenua rohe.

Tools for a happier life


We are fortunate at  Arowhenua Whanau Services to have a Mental Health Team of two Registered Nurses and a Support Worker to assist our community in dealing with a variety of mental issues affecting our people today.

Mostly we deal with Depression, Anxiety, Grief and Addiction issues, however  we also offer stress /anxiety management which we are seeing higher levels of in the rural sector presently.

There is no limit to the number of sessions and discharge would be when you no longer require the service, you move to another service, you chose to stop the contact.

Our Service is FREE, confidential and available to anyone in the South Canterbury, of any ethnicity, over the age of 12 years.

If this sounds like you or one of your loved ones please contact us on 03 615 5180. We are here to help.
