Step Ahead is for people aged 18 and over with a mental illness who can attend meetings independently. That means you must have at least a basic level of motivation. You may be helped in your first visit by your community support worker, a whānau (family) member, a friend or another support person. You can attend as often as you like as long as you take part in meaningful activities.
