Mindfulness Month 2022

We all have mental health and I am committing to focusing on my wellbeing this August with a month of mindfulness

So many people, including myself, have struggled with their mental health at times in their life. I have found practices such as mindfullness, self-compassion and kindness to be an invaluable support in my life.

I am committing to this month of mindfulness for my own well-being and also to raise funds to support others who need help with their own mental wellness. 

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 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,

Neal Ghoshal
