Queenstown Marathon 2018

Team Mental Health Foundation

[Fill in the blank … my story and why I want to help raise money and awareness for mental health]

Which is why I’m doing the Queenstown Marathon for the Mental Health Foundation.

Each year 1 in 5 Kiwis experience a mental health problem. The Mental Health Foundation ensures no one has to face this on their own.

They work to raise awareness about mental health, and ways we can look after our mental wellbeing. They take calls and answer emails from people who are looking to access their local mental health services. They provide free wellbeing resources and information about what to do if you, or someone you care about is not coping or needs help. They do work in the rural sector, in workplaces, schools and through community groups.

For people living with or supporting someone with mental illness they advocate for better access to services, equal opportunities in employment and work closely with the media to ensure portrayals of people experiencing mental illness are balanced and helpful.
