Refugees as Survivors New Zealand (RASNZ) is the leading mental health service for people from refugee backgrounds living in New Zealand.
RASNZ was established in 1995 as a non-denominational, politically-neutral and non-aligned not-for-profit charitable trust. We are governed by an elected Board of Trustees and funded by the Ministry of Health, philanthropic organisations and donations from individuals and the wider community.
RASNZ promotes programmes and policies that respect and advance the health, wellbeing and human rights of people from refugee backgrounds.
Refugees and people from related backgrounds will have access to quality, culturally responsive health services to assist positive resettlement in New Zealand.
