Common Ground
Common Ground aims to ensure parents, families, whānau and friends of young people have easy access to information that will help them support young people to manage hard times, and enjoy positive mental health and wellbeing. The website gives whānau access to information, tools and support, so they can assist young people to get the right kind of help when they need it. They also provide space for sharing ideas and experiences, acknowledging the expertise and wisdom of parents, whānau and young people themselves. People can connect by sharing their own experiences and suggestions about supporting young people.
