Able Charitable Trust

Region wide community based service for those affected by mental illness and/or addiction and their family/whānau.

Able offers a free, confidential and mobile service of information, education, support and advocacy covering the Otago/Southland region. Family/whānau services also include support for children or young people affected by a parent/siblings mental health and/or addiction.

Able offers support to people affected by a mental illness through the Focus Vocational services. Community based Activity Centres are available in Alexandra and Dunedin encouraging people to learn new skills and reconnect with their communities through a range of onsite and offsite activities. Dunedin also offers an Employment Service, supporting their journey to obtain and sustain meaningful employment.
