Mental Health & Addiction Update - 28 September 2020on 29 September
Kia ora whānau
What an uplifting week Mental Health Awareness Week was with so many conversations and activities focused on wellbeing.
The theme for the week was to Reimagine Wellbeing Together – He Tirohanga Anamata.
That’s in recognition that this year hasn’t been easy and that we might need to reconsider the experiences, actions and surroundings that make us feel good, stay well, and uplift our wellbeing. And we need to do that together.
What I saw and heard last week were so many voices sharing the same wellbeing sentiment and focusing on what we can all do. There were some great podcasts, learning sessions, celebration activities, inspiring photos and videos and articles in the media that are all focused on sharing with people that doing the basics right as often as you can will make a difference to your wellbeing. I felt inspired and hopeful being a part of the week.
Our thanks to the Mental Health Foundation who we fund to run the week for us. And my thanks to all of you who have played a part in sharing the wellbeing message.
As the school holidays are now here, I hope some of you will have the opportunity to rest and recharge with your families.
