Mental Health Peer & Self Help Centre

Peer Support for people with Mental illness.

We offer a range of ways to benefit from the unique wisdom which we all bring to the Centre from our own experiences of recovery.

People can learn and share this wisdom at some of our weekly workshops or by making an appointment with a Quest worker to have regular catch ups to move forward in recovery and work through challenges you are experiencing.

You can use your creative skills to help with our initiatives such as our Mad Pride Gig, Matariki celebration or Planet 401 Magazine which are creative ways of sharing our stories of recovery.

Or you may just want to enjoy an informal cup of coffee with another person who has come into the Centre for that very same thing in one of our conversation areas.

To join Centre 401 Trust just make an appointment to become a member by calling 838 0199.

  • Wisdom through experience, Peer Support.
  • Being there, being with, being for, being real.
