Dads Virtual Peer Support Group
“The Dads’ virtual peer support group is intended for fathers dealing with Family Separation and the Family Court system.
Dads from anywhere in New Zealand are welcome to join the group meetings to share their stories, knowledge, and experiences regarding Family Separation or the Family Court system. You can also receive guidance from peers with lived experiences in dealing with Family Separation, learn strategies for managing emotions, discover where to seek help, and explore various approaches to achieve the best outcomes for yourself and your children.
This safe platform provides a space where you can freely express yourself and engage with peers who offer a sympathetic ear without judgment. Peers here understand the feelings and struggles you’re going through because they’ve been in your shoes – you’re in the right place.
