Community Peer Advocacy Support Service

“Your Vision, Your Choice”

New Zealand was the first country in the world to introduce a national state sponsored Needle Exchange Programme.

Today the programme operates from Whangarei through to Invercargill through a network of dedicated outlets and pharmacy based exchanges.

We distribute over 3 million needles each year. In addition to support and advice on harm reduction we also collect returns and ensure the safe disposal of equipment used for injecting drug use.


Mind and Body is a for-peer-by-peer organisation. All Mind & Body staff have lived experience of mental distress or addiction, providing an empathy and understanding of what people may be experiencing. The guiding principle of all Mind & Body services is that every person is capable of flourishing in life.

Our areas of expertise are mental health peer support; initiatives involving social inclusion and de-stigmatisation; mental health education programs and independent peer advocacy for people with mental health issues and addictions.
