If you or someone you know is 18-25 years old, lives in the Greater Wellington region, and would like to access free support, the Piki programme may be helpful.

You can also be referred by your GP, other health providers and other agencies who can help to refer you via this website too.


Piki’s vision is to enhance young people’s quality of life by equipping them with tools to overcome adversity and strengthen their wellbeing.
