Please remember, limiting our interactions with others is our best defence against COVID-19. Please don’t visit the hospital if you don’t need to. The following level 2 visitor restrictions are in place for all Canterbury DHB health facilities:

  • Visitors will be screened and asked to provide contact details upon arrival
  • Visitors who are unwell or have suspicion of COVID-19 will not be able to enter
  • Aged residential care: no visitors, however, family visits for palliative care residents who do not have COVID-19 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Specific and detailed visitor restrictions that apply to each hospital are available on our COVID-19 page.

Help for children whose parents have a mental illness or addiction

There are people and organisations that can help you. If you, or a child you know, needs help to cope with a family affected by mental illness or addiction, you can contact these organisations.

You can also ask your GP (family doctor), social worker or teacher to help you find a service that can help.

Services include organisations providing counselling, parent support, camps, education, and opportunities for children to take a break away from their families when things get really hard.
