struggle got real? tahi whitu toru whitu

It’s been a tough last year. A struggle for some. Some of us who’ve never needed counsellor support before… might want to think about getting that support now from 1737. We’ve launched a campaign talking about that.

Help spread the messages. To know more about this campaign – and promote it to your friends, whānau or business - visit Struggle got real?

We’re here. Free call or text 1737 any time, 24 hours a day. You’ll get to talk to (or text with) a trained counsellor or talk to a peer support worker. Our service is completely free.

  • Are you feeling anxious or just need someone to talk to? Call or text 1737.
  • Are you feeling down or a bit overwhelmed? Call or text 1737.
  • Do you know someone who is feeling out-of-sorts or depressed? Let them know they can call or text 1737.

Whatever it is, we’re here.

NEW: 1737 Peer Support.
