Connect Supporting Recovery Inc. is a Non-Government Organisation (NGO) with charitable status providing support to service users with mental health issues and/or alcohol/other drug addictions.
Our services include mobile, residential, employment, networking and training services throughout Auckland and the Waikato districts. The majority of people we support are referred from elsewhere in the health service but some of our services accept and encourage self-referrals.
Our funding comes mostly from District Health Boards or the Ministry of Social Development. We also have two Social Enterprises focussing on earlier interventions, some of which are paid for by businesses or schools.
Whatever the support, we pride ourselves on putting the service user firmly at the centre, and in control, of their unique wellness and recovery journey.
