Green Prescription (GRx)


Green Prescriptions are for any adult 18 years and over, anywhere in the country, who wants to improve their wellbeing. There are also programmes for your whole whānau and if you are pregnant. Ask your GP today.

When you are a carer with multiple demands for your time, and little money to spare, it can be hard to take care of your own needs. You may also have had trauma and abuse, addiction or mental health issues, or live with a long-term condition or disability. All these things can make it harder to take good care of yourself. A Green Prescription is a way to get support to make some changes and take charge of your health and wellbeing. You get your own support person to work with you to achieve your goals. They know about courses, programmes and other services available in your area. You can also meet other people in your community who are taking steps to improve their health and wellbeing. This means you get personal attention and also the opportunity for more social connection.
