One in five Kiwis experience a mental illness every year.

Thanks to your donation, we can make sure the kōrero about mental health never stops.

Because of your support, Mental Health Awareness Week doesn’t end here. Here is how your donation helps:   

  • Advocacy. Our policy and advocacy team exists because of your support. Because of you, we can continue to ensure the voices of those living with mental distress are heard. Our team advocates on behalf of people with experience of mental health issues for better access to services, a national commitment to upholding dignity and human rights, and equal participation in communities and in employment

  • Offering free resources and information to Kiwis across Aotearoa to improve knowledge and understanding about mental health and wellbeing topics. Whether it’s to support themselves or to support a loved one, we’re here to make sure they have the right tools in their kete.  

  • Providing information and support to individuals, friends and whānau so they know where to turn to for help. By sharing what we know keep people well and what support is available to help people cope with the hard times, you’re helping to make sure no one has to go through a tough time alone. 

In the last year alone:

580,000 people accessed information and guidance on mental health.

Over 7,000 resources were distributed to schools and education providers

Over 900,000 NZ adults said our work helped them do something to improve their wellbeing

Over 25 submissions, advice and position statementswere submitted by our policy and advocacy team

Thanks to your help, all this work won’t stop.
