I'm fundraising for the Mental Health Foundation NZ by participating in Mindfulness Month this August. Donations would be greatly appreciated. 💗 Take care of yourself first and please only give if you can spare it!
Thank you for supporting this cause. It's very important to me as someone who has mental health challenges. I have been officially diagnosed with ADHD, Bipolar II, and Anxiety/PTSD. In reality I also deal with frequent brain fog and auditory processing difficulties which often leave me feeling negatively about myself.
I already know mindfulness is so helpful but lately I've been neglectful of practising it. I want to use this fundraiser to motivate me to improve my own mental health and share that journey with others. I hope you will sponsor me for the greater mental health of all New Zealanders!
We all have mental health and I am committing to focusing on my wellbeing this August with a month of mindfulness.
I believe that we can do better to support the mental health of all New Zealanders and I am fundraising to support the Mental Health Foundation to hold the government to account and challenge us as a nation.
The Mental Health Foundation believes that together, we can work towards creating a society free from discrimination, where we can all enjoy positive mental health and wellbeing.
Please show your support and donate to my page today, every little bit counts! Your donations will support the Mental Health Foundation to:
- Push to transform our mental health system to one which prevents problems developing, responds earlier and more effectively and empowers communities and individuals to learn the behaviours that will protect and enhance their mental resilience and wellbeing.
- Advocate for systemic change to improve social, economic and cultural determinants of mental health and wellbeing. This includes advocating for secure and safe housing and opposing discriminatory systems.
- Ensure our work is informed by tāngata whaiora (people with lived experience of mental distress) through active engagement with these communities.
- Action our commitment as a Te Tiriti o Waitangi partner by engaging with and being led by Māori, uplifting and amplifying Māori voices, incorporating mātauranga Māori into our work and seeking improved outcomes for Māori.
Thank you in advance,
MAURI TU, MAURI ORA.
