Background on the Psychosocial Committee

The Greater Christchurch Psychosocial Committee plans, coordinates, promotes, and monitors the psychosocial recovery and wellbeing of the population of greater Christchurch.

The Psychosocial Committee is an interagency group which came into existence in September 2010 with the aim of ensuring appropriate supports are in place for the population to recover from the earthquakes. Together, we are responsible for overseeing the delivery of the Community in Mind Strategy’s Shared Programme of Action which includes numerous initiatives, services and supports, including the 0800 Canterbury Support line, the Earthquake Support Coordination Service, free counselling, and the ‘All Right?’ campaign.

The Committee meets monthly and convenes more frequently if needed. Meetings focus on surveying the psychosocial landscape to identify emerging or ongoing wellbeing issues within greater Christchurch and how to address these.

Current members of the committee are: ‘All Right?’, Canterbury Civil Defence Emergency Management Group, Canterbury DHB, Christchurch City Council, Earthquake Commission, Earthquake Support Coordination Service, Interchurch Forum, Ministry for Pacific Peoples, Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Mental Health Education and Resource Centre, Mental Health Foundation, Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Social Development, One Voice Te Reo Kotahi (NGO delegate), Pegasus Health, Red Cross, Selwyn District Council, Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu, University of Canterbury, and Waimakariri District Council.

The Psychosocial Committee escalates issues to the Psychosocial Governance Group as appropriate. Governance Group members are: Canterbury DHB, Christchurch City Council, Department of Prime Minster and Cabinet Greater Christchurch Group, Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Social Development, Ngāi Tahu, Police, Selwyn District Council, and Waimakariri District Council.
