Biographical Info

Taranaki Rural Support Trust Mission is to assist Taranaki rural people to restore their livelihoods in the wake of adversity.

We work with farmers for a wide range of stressors and Trustees and Facilitators are rural people with local knowledge and an understanding of rural life challenges.

Community support is delivered through facilitation of “Good Yarn”, a rural mental health awareness workshop. Individual support is free and confidential with one-on-one contact or linking to expertise.
