Individual Wellbeing Support

We offer culturally responsive, multilingual support for families in the Muslim community of Ōtautahi Christchurch. Our service is confidential, non-judgemental, and focused on the individual needs of each client. 

To provide Individual Wellbeing Support, we match you with a Wellbeing Practitioner who is best suited to your cultural and language needs. Your Wellbeing Practitioner will complete an assessment to identify your current needs and work with you to create a plan towards your goals.

Your wellbeing plan will reflect on your physical, mental, spiritual, and social wellbeing. 

Your wellbeing goals could involve:

  • Pursuing a healthy lifestyle, including physical activity and healthy eating 

  • Relationship building with friends and family  

  • Connection with the community 

  • Connecting with community groups and programmes to enhance wellbeing 

  • Finding study, training, and employment opportunities including support with applications 

  • Connecting with your faith 

  • Access to social, legal, health and community services  

  • Advocacy with social, legal, health and community services

Mental Health Pathways

We understand that navigating the mental health system can be overwhelming. Our mental health clinicians can work alongside you to understand your mental health needs and link you to appropriate services and pathways.

Our mental health clinicians have capacity to provide therapy, but this is limited. Alternatively, we can help identify possible avenues for you to receive therapeutic support in the community.
