Mental Health Advocacy and Peer Support (MHAPS), has a vision of Christchurch as a city where people are thriving, happy and have the best

MHAPS’ peer workers meet with people experiencing mental health challenges, for support, advocacy, and education, in groups or one-to-one. All staff have personal lived experience of mental distress, and of transforming these experiences into a life worth living. We offer genuine human connection and the chance to learn and practise these skills together.

We and our predecessor organisations have provided 1000s of instances of support to people in need since the early 1990s. In last year we provided 1214 instances of services through our various programmes - a 50% increase in numbers due largely to stresses associated with the earthquake and related issues (housing, insurance, employment etc.).

HI, from 23 November until Christmas I'll be giving up Coffee and Chocolate for this great cause. First weekend was a bit of a shocker with 'flu like withdrawal symptoms but It's been not too bad since then, although the aroma of my wife's espresso in the weekends is a bit of a challenge.
