Health Action Trust (Nelson)

Working with communities to improve health and remove barriers that limit wellbeing. Our organisation provides health promotion and mental health services, under a range of contracts funded by the Ministry of Health and Nelson Marlborough DHB.

We provide Intentional Peer Support services working in Mental Health & Addictions for Nelson Marlborough Health as well as health promotion (alcohol and other drugs, and mental health) in the Nelson/Tasman region.

Our health promotion work uses a community action approach; we work closely alongside other groups to assist them to develop solutions that will create lasting change and improve health.

Our work is guided by Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the five components of the Ottawa Charter which are:

  1. Building healthy public policy
  2. Creating supportive environments
  3. Strengthening community action
  4. Developing personal skills
  5. Re-orienting health services

Health Action works closely with a range of groups and agencies at both local and national level.
