COVID Recovery Programme for SME’s

Opportunity for small and medium business owners to access free therapy/ counselling as part of the COVID Recovery Programme

The Government recently released a COVID Recovery Plan which includes the First Steps Programme.

First Steps provides access to health and wellbeing support tailored to the many business owners across Tāmaki Makaurau that are feeling overwhelmed, isolated, and under pressure from the mental and emotional impact of ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

When you are operating in an unbalanced world it can take its toll on anxiety levels, wellness, stress, and even impact the quality of sleep.

The programme is specifically established to provide assistance to small/medium business owners (from 1-100 employees) who feel they and their business has been adversely impacted by the stressors caused by the pandemic.

One of the providers in West Auckland is ‘Good Therapy’ in Titirangi.
