If you or your whānau need wellbeing support as you navigate your insurance claim, the NZCRS may be able to help.
We recognise the insurance claims’ process can take a toll, especially if you’ve already experienced the disruption of a natural disaster and damage to your property. The NZCRS wants to support you as best as we can.
For those impacted by the Canterbury earthquakes, we can connect you with experienced mental health and wellbeing professionals in your community.
We’re working with Te Whatu Ora to make wellbeing support available to homeowners across Aotearoa New Zealand. In the meantime, if you need support please reach out for help. Talk to your doctor, or contact one of the services below.
