Young person in distress? A website for parents, whānau and friends
Common Ground is a website for parents, whānau and friends – to recognise and understand the difficult situations that young people go through in their lives, and understand the support system a young person might have around them. Being a support person for a distressed teenager or a young person who is experiencing a mental illness can be a difficult road without any support around you.
Common Ground houses advice and information for the support network of a young person to help them recognise and understand the hard times young people can go through, as well as identify early stages of possible mental illness. The website provides easy access to advice, helplines, local communities and information on the mental health system in New Zealand.
With understanding and early action we are able to support young people to manage hard times and enjoy positive mental health and wellbeing.
