Emerge Aotearoa provides a wide range of community-based mental health, addiction, and disability support services nationwide.
We believe that everyone is capable of living full and rich lives in their communities. In every aspect of our work we are committed to helping our service users choose to live to their full potential .
We were formed in 2015, following the merger of two established mental health providers, Richmond Services and Recovery Solutions. We took the best thoughts, principles and practices from both these organisations to create a new organisation that would deliver the best possible outcomes, and be influenced and lead by the people who use our services
We operate in most of the 20 DHB geographic areas - across New Zealand from Kaitaia to the West Coast of the South Island, employ about 1000 people and provide accommodation, services, and support to approximately 6,000 people.
