The Bridge services work within a whānau ora framework recognising & encouraging the involvement and support of family/whānau in all aspects of the tāngata whaiora journey.
We recognise that family/whānau can be a source of strength, identity, and support. The holistic health and well-being of the entire whānau are important to support the health and well-being outcomes for kaupapa whānau. To support this process, we provide suggestions and strategies on how family whānau members can look after themselves whilst dealing with the impact of a family/whānau member or friend's substance use.
