An alternative holistic approach to mental health. Save lives. Save people from misery.

The New Zealand Hermitage Charitable Trust incorporated no. 268891, Charities Services Reg. no. CC.51223 promotes an alternative holistic approach to mental health issues. This is particularly with regard to, but not only, a spiritual emergency, whether it has a diagnosis of Schizophrenia, Bi-polar disorder or Depression etc.

We continue to support people in their own homes, ministering, to them according to their needs.

We aim for cures without electro shock treatment which destroys brain cells and without current psychiatric drugs and their pernicious side-effects which are often mistaken by the ignorant for a mental illness. Instead an alternative approach including the natural formula DEN is used, (Daily Essential Nutrients) which has no side effects. We aim for people to have happy, fulfilling lives reaching their full potential.

With early intervention and prevention we hope to prevent serious mental health outcomes such as suicide, incarceration, family violence, despair, homelessness, and general health impairment from the side effects of psychiatric drugs and addiction.

Hopefully we will avoid often traumatic admissions to a psychiatric institution and all that goes with it, including ECT (electro shock treatment) and pernicious side effects of psychiatric drugs.

Hopefully by following the Swedish model of Healing Homes we will avoid often traumatic admissions to a psychiatric institution and all that goes with it, including ECT (electro shock treatment) and pernicious side effects of psychiatric drugs.

Since 1987 the Family Care Foundation in Sweden has had an incredible success rate with their Healing Homes helping those with mental health issues without psychiatric drugs and ECT by placing one service user with a family on a farm (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v= JV4NTEp8S2Q)

The families are not chosen because they have psychiatric and psychological qualifications, but are chosen because they are compassionate, stable, loving, caring, decent people who want "to give back to life". The families together with the service user are supported by a psychotherapist/ psychologist. It is an enriching experience for all concerned, that is for families as well as participants.

We hope to make a Kiwi Yurt available as extra accommodation for those families who wish to participate in the project who do not have enough sleeping accommodation in their homes.

Although we are essentially a voluntary organisation, where individuals generously give of their time and expertise, we are expanding and need money for operational costs. We are also looking for natural insulation for the Kiwi Yurt.

Please help and give a little as every bit helps..

The next person who needs help could be you or a loved one. It is estimated one in six New Zealanders at sometime in their lives suffer from a mental health problem.
