GREEN PRESCRIPTION

Green Prescription - Healthy Lifestyles Programme

Do you need some support, ideas or motivation to look after your wellbeing?

We are a free local support service funded by the Ministry of Health and supported by the Southern District Health Board.  Our Healthy Lifestyles Team can provide individualised care to support you to achieving your goals.  Whether that is support with mental wellbeing*, stress, being active or eating well, we want to be there for you.

*Improving mental wellbeing focuses on developing your understanding of the New Zealand Mental Health Foundation "Five Ways to Wellbeing" and providing ideas on how to improve those areas.

What's Next?

  • Regular check-ins via phone, email, Facebook or Skype to monitor your progress and provide support where needed.
