Mental Health Awareness Week (8-14 October)

I know our teams have been incredibly busy organising some great events to help celebrate Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) this year. MHAW is a truly global event now, being marked in over 150 countries and in New Zealand runs from 8–14 October. The theme this year is Let nature in, strengthen your wellbeing – Mā te taiao, kia whakapakari tōu oranga.

Connecting with nature can uplift your wairua/spirit and promote mental health and wellbeing. That nature theme is aligned to the simple message of applying the Five Ways to Wellbeing to your everyday life. These are: Connect/Whakawhanaungatanga; Take Notice/Me Aro Tonu; Keep Learning/Me Ako Tonu; Be Active/Me Kori Tonu; and Give/Tukua.

Look out for more information on the planned events (including bush walks, barbecues, picnics, mindfulness sessions, and a guest appearance by some of our local sporting stars) on OnePlace, our website and social media channels.
