Haere mai. Welcome to Te Tahi Youth.


Te Tahi Youth is the new name for 298 Youth Health.

Why the new name? Te Tahi Youth Chair Dr Lyndsey Dance says they felt that the name 298 Youth Health no longer accurately reflected their people or their services.

“We have grown so much since opening 198 Youth Health 28 years ago and while the 198 and 298 names have served us well, we wanted an identity that more closely represented the wide range of services we offer and the young people we work with. We wanted a name that encompassed our values of compassion, acceptance, resilience and encouragement while showcasing a style and vibe that resonates with our people and patients,” says Lyndsey.

However, Lyndsey says the name is all that’s changed.

“Our people, our free wrap-around service and support – that’s all staying exactly the same. We’ve been here for young people since 1995 and we’re still here for young people today.”

All contact details for Te Tahi Youth remain the same as they were for 298 Youth Health. If you connect with our team via email don’t worry – all 298 emails will automatically redirect to our Te Tahi Youth addresses.

“All you need to do is sit back and join us on the next step of our journey as Te Tahi Youth and we’re excited about where that journey will take us as we continue our mission to support Ōtautahi rangatahi to be the best version of themselves.”
