ABE Programme

The ABE Programme is a physical activity initiative in Christchurch delivered by Emerge Aotearoa. The primary aim of the programme is to encourage people living with mental illness to engage in healthier lifestyles.

The service offers client-centred, tailored programmes that are approximately three months in duration and incorporate exercise and nutritional advice for the improvement of physical health, mental wellbeing and quality of life. Longer-term follow-up support and small group activities are possible if required.

To enter the programme a referral is needed from a health professional or mental health service provider; self-referral is possible if diagnosed with a mental health issue.

This service is mobile, utilising community-based resources.
