Mental Health Services NZ

 

We at Ballsy are a NZ brand that is simply here to help raise awareness around mental health (particularly for Men). We are not a mental health service and we are not a team of professional mental health clinicians.

We are just an incredibly passionate brand with a goal to raise awareness for mental health, to normalise these sorts of conversations, to encourage those to speak up and seek the support and help they need.

 

As humans we all experience some degree of mental health during our lifetime due to various contributing factors. Some of us can acknowledge and understand our emotions while others cant.

At times our mood can fluctuate and our emotions can feel unpredictable and out of character making us feel vulnerable, overwhelmed and out of control.

We are all in this together, so please, if you are experiencing any of the below feelings or emotions then please scroll down and access one of the many mental health support services available here in NZ. However, if it is an emergency and you think your or someone else is at risk dial 111 immediately.
