Take a minute and stand side by side

with Kiwis in need

Be there for Kiwis struggling with their mental health

Thank you for taking the time to stand side-by-side with Kiwis struggling with their mental health in 2020.

It’s been a really tough year for the team of five million. Kiwis across Aotearoa are in need of support for their mental health and wellbeing like never before. This year the added challenge of COVID-19 has meant that for many Kiwis it is especially hard to see hope and to find purpose and a way through.

They need support. Your support. And they need it now.

We all have mental health and mental health struggles are extremely common. So much so that as many as 1 in 5 Kiwis will face mental health challenges this year alone and 1 in 2 Kiwis will face mental health challenges in their lifetime. That could be you, me or someone you love.

The good news is most of us will find the right support to get through. But for some, the reality is it can all feel too much to cope with.

Every cent you donate today will be put to work providing mental health support resources for Kiwis struggling with their mental health right now. Given the tough year we have all had, these resources couldn’t come soon enough.

Please donate generously.
