Te Hā - Waitaha offers FREE stop smoking support to anyone in Canterbury.
We have a hub in Christchurch with Quit Coaches based in a range of Māori, Pasifika and rural community organisations across Canterbury.
Our Quit Coaches work with you and your whānau to find ways that can make quitting easier.
Specific support is available to you if you are Māori, Pacific, pregnant or living with a pregnant woman.
A Quit Coach will contact you once you or your whānau register for support - to discuss how we can best help. We will work with you to set a quit date, and provide ongoing support so you can stay smokefree.
We can tailor a stop smoking programme that works for you after an initial face-to-face conversation. This will include more face-to-face sessions (either individually or as part of a group) and follow-up over the phone.
You’ll also be able to access FREE Nicotine Replacement Therapy – patches, gum and lozenges – as well as customised support.
