About Atareira and Membership Form
Established in 1979 as Schizophrenia Fellowship Wellington Branch, Atareira is an incorporated society and a registered charity affiliated to Supporting Families in Mental Illness New Zealand (SFNZ)
The term Atareira describes an early morning, when there is just a silhouette of the approaching dawn on the horizon. A time when we receive our first glimpse of what the coming day will bring. It is a time of anticipation, preparedness and hope.
