Referral Process

It can be complex to explain how referrals are made to Pact so please get in touch if you want to find out how to access our services. We’ll bend over backwards to help you. Even if you are not eligible for government-funded Pact support, we have other options, including paying for Pact services privately (see individually-funded services).


In Southland, our family/whānau support workers can help the family of young people recovering from mental illness, by providing information on mental health and how best to support their loved one. Our support workers help families /whānau adapt to their family members' illness. They also provide advocacy for the family.
