Rainbow Youth Hawkes Bay
RYHB is a student run group based in Napier looking for people interested in a place for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth (aged 13-19) to find contact, support, and friendship. Our aim is to establish a place of contact for these teens, who are feeling alone, or
just want to be in touch with people like them. With numbers, we intend to start regular group meetings to socialize, play games, gasbag, watch queer movies, and generally hang out. The first step is knowing you're not alone out there.
The Counselling Practice Napier and Hastings
Rapid, free 30 minute testing for the HIV Virus, the Hepatitis C Virus and the bacterial infection Syphilis is available Monday to Friday daytimes through to early evenings and on Saturday mornings. Timothy is a contract counsellor and tester for the New Zealand AIDS Foundation.
All tests are by appointment only and are available for all people, irrespective of gender, age or sexuality.
Testing is available in Hastings on a Thursday and in Napier on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
Testing is free, quick, and confidential - you don't even have to give your full name if you don't want to.
Appointments normally last no more than 30 minutes, and in that time you'll talk with the counsellor who will take some basic details, and you'll then have a small finger prick to take a tiny sample of blood. After that you'll be asked to take a seat in the waiting room for around 10 minutes while the sample is processed. You will then be invited back into the room and given your result. If any test is confined positive you will be given immediate information on where to go to for further advice, treatment and support. Counselling support with Timothy may also be available, usually at no cost. Your GP won't be informed of any test result unless you give your consent for this to happen.
Address: 16a Cathedral Lane, Napier and 115 Avenue Road East, Hastings.
