Common Ground

Our Work / Common Ground

Common Ground aims to help parents, families, whānau and friends to support young people to manage hard times and enjoy happier lives.

Through its website, phone line, text counselling and a information pack services, Common Ground provides easy access to information, tools and advice about how to support a young person. 



The Common Ground website provides space for sharing ideas and experiences, acknowledging the expertise and wisdom of parents, whānau, and young people themselves.

Common Ground is provided in collaboration with Skylight and Youthline, with support from Curative, and innovate change. It is an initiative of the Prime Minister’s Youth Mental Health Project.
