Kia ora. Te piko o te māhuri, tērā te tupu o te rākau.
The way the seedling is nurtured determines how the tree grows.

It was an exciting Mental Health Awareness Week in October full of looking after our wellbeing, learning from each other and getting into nature.
Share your thoughts and feedback by completing this 10-minute survey.

And let's keep our wellbeing growing through:

Nāku iti nei,
Lian and the Mental Health Foundation team

Well done whānau!

Hi-fives all round! 🖐 Our Wellbeing Photo Challenge was picture perfect (excuse the pun)! We saw some ātaahua (beautiful) photos from everyone showcasing all the little gems in Aotearoa.

Make some time to scroll through and see what gems you can find.

Do you mind? I'm busy...

We've all heard this before, and maybe even said it ourselves. We all try to do a million things a day, but it's important to hit pause every now and then. Simply taking three minutes to notice what's happening around you and your feelings in that moment can help you be more present, know your mood, and strengthen your wellbeing.

Discover some ways that you can be mindful at work, at home, at your local cafe, and on social media.

Worried about someone?

You know somethings up, but you are unsure how to ask, let alone what to say.
Our booklet 'Are you worried someone is thinking about suicide?' can help prepare you to have these conversations with loved ones. Sometimes connecting with a loved one can help those thinking about suicide find a way through.

Call or text 1737 for free to talk a trained counsellor if you want more guidance.

Give Te Araroa a go - don't let your wellbeing trail off! Covering the length of Aotearoa from Cape Reinga to Bluff, this 3000km trail is a great way to challenge yourself, be active and get into our beautiful outdoors.

Support the following women that are taking on this epic trail to shine a light on the mental battles we can all face and overcome, whether it's self-doubt, negative thinking, or low self-esteem:

What challenge will you set today to move your mood?

What's on?

New York, New York...

Hail a cab folks, because a team of amazing people are in the USA taking part in the New York Marathon. We're super grateful for all the conversations about mental health the team has started through quiz nights to bake sales and all the way to the Central Park finish line.

Collectively Julie, Matt, Caleb, Nyla, Ben, Elliot, Gerry, Jo, Gail, and Maysie have raised over $76,000 towards promoting wellbeing in Aotearoa.

Inca you missed it?

We're doing a second Trek for Mental Health: Inca Trail Challenge leaving in September 2019. Join our team of passionate adventurers by setting yourself the challenge to raise funds and awareness for mental health while taking on the majestic Machu Picchu.

Find out how to join our Inca Trail Challenge team!

A big thank you to Foundation North for funding new desktop computers for staff struggling with glitchy and unreliable older models. What a difference it has made to our mahi!
