Thinking About ChangeThis page is for people who are thinking about changing their behaviour because they're worried about hurting or scaring someone close to them. You may be supporting a friend or family/whānau member to get help. It takes courage to be here, and we're here to support you to find the right way for you.
Taking Steps For ChangeWant to know how to make some changes? Ka rawe/excellent! This page has some ideas to help you think about what's important to you and why you want to make changes. You can learn about when things start to go wrong, and what you can do when you notice this happening. There will be some things here that apply to you, and others that don't, so take what you need from this page.
Staying on TrackWhen we take on big changes in our lives, we don't always get it 100% right the first time. Staying on track takes practice and learning from what has happened and having a plan for next time is what counts. That includes making sure to look after yourself too.
