We are thrilled to announce Hon Dr Megan Woods, who has been the Member of Parliament for Wigram since 2011, as Petersgate Counselling Centre's first Patron.
Megan is the Minister of Housing, Minister of Energy and Resources, Minister of Research, Science and Innovation and Associate Minister of Finance within the current Labour Government.
Megan's support of Petersgate will bring some much-needed attention to the current mental health crisis in New Zealand as a result of the uncertainty and unpredictability of Covid-19.
Megan says of her patronage of Petersgate:
Affordable community-based counselling plays a vital role in supporting people at this challenging time. I have been so impressed with the professionalism of Petersgate's counsellors in their tireless commitment to providing affordable professional counselling to people in need. I am therefore proud to join them as their Patron.
