Where your donations go

Donations to the Mental Health Foundation go towards funding information resources and website, and campaigns. 

Specifically they contribute towards:

  • Providing information to individuals, families, friends and whānau about where to turn for help and the ways to look after ourselves and others.
  • Organising Mental Health Awareness Week and Pink Shirt Day campaigns to promote and educate about general wellbeing, anti-bullying and anti-discrimination.
  • Advocating on behalf of people with experience of mental illness for better access to services, a national commitment to upholding dignity and human rights, and equal participation in communities and in employment.
  • Creating resources for workplaces and schools to improve knowledge about mental health and wellbeing topics

Thank you for making a donation. Your support means we can keep working to ensure no-one has to face mental illness alone.
