Supporting Parents Healthy Children
Department: Mental HealthSupporting Parents Healthy Children

Supporting Parents Healthy Children (SPHC) is a Ministry of Health guideline for all Mental Health and Addiction services within New Zealand. The purpose of SPHC is to support parents, children and families/whanau where a parent experiences mental health or addiction challenges.

The West Coast DHB is working towards implementing the guideline, with many of our local community support services already being well under way.

Below you can find links to helpful and informative resources for parents, tamariki and whānau. Many of these booklets and tipsheets are available in hardcopy. You can email or ask your case manager if you have one.
