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 Te Whatu Ora / The Ministry of Health.
Our Healthy Lifestyles Team provides individualised support for you towards achieving your goals.  Whether that is support with physical activity, movement, healthy eating, or mental wellbeing*, we are here to support anyone based here in Otago.  

*We are able to support improving mental wellbeing by developing your understanding of the New Zealand Mental Health Foundation "Five Ways to Wellbeing" and use movement and healthy eating

What's Next?

If you have self-referred or if your health professional (Dr, nurse, physio etc) has put a referral through we will be in touch over the phone to schedule you in for an initial consultation.

The initial consultation is a conversation where we will get to know what you are wanting to achieve and see if we can help create a plan that suits you.

From there, we will keep in touch over the next three months over the phone, text, email, video chat, in person – whatever is going to work best for you.​​​​​​​
