All Right? Campaign update: March 2018

Thursday, March 1, 2018   Posted in: Healthy Christchurch Notices By: Administrator With tags: mental health, newsletter, mens health, resilience, mental wellbeing, pacific

Morning Cantabs. It's already March and the summer holidays seem a long time ago! Has anyone else noticed the slightest autumnal shade to the trees?

As we settle in to another year it's a great time to be prioritising those things that we know are good for us - things like catching up with mates, getting some fresh air, and enjoying some downtime. These things are not trivial - they can make all the difference to how you're feeling.

The All Right? team

Fill your wellbeing kete...

Some wellbeing food for thought from us, to you. Enjoy.

Talking about it. Manly As

Meet Matt - the owner of My Father's Barber. Matt and his crew are stepping up and showing what modern manliness looks like.

Nothing is out of bounds in his chair. It's where his clients and friends come to chat about what's going on in their lives, their problems, and their successes.

Matt's a firm believer that sometimes all it takes to help out a mate is to listen and show you care.

Talking about stuff and being there can make a big difference. It's Manly As...

Pacifically Speaking 

Over the last three years All Right? has worked closely with Canterbury's Pacific population to explore how Pacific identity supports wellbeing.

Find out more about the importance of family, faith and culture to our youthful and growing Pacific community - we've learned a lot!

Stages of Grief by Mari Andrew.

Grief illustrated

Grief is the outcome of loving and losing someone or something in life. It is a difficult experience that most of us will have to endure at some point.

Artist Mari Andrew has created some helpful (and hopeful) illustrations that highlight grief experiences from a very personal perspective perhaps better than words can convey.

See more illustrations from Mari Andrew (Instagram).

See you at the A&P Show?

There's something special about an A&P Show. They allow people catch to up, help out, and celebrate the best bits of their community.

A&P Show season has just kicked off in North Canterbury - Kaikoura had their show in the weekend (despite the damage to the roads from ex-cyclone Gita) and there's a bunch coming up:

  • Amuri A&P Show: 3 March 
  • Cheviot A&P Show: 10 March
  • Hawarden A&P Show: 16 March 

Kaikoura and Hurunui have been through a lot since the November 2016 quake, and the A&P shows are a key way for All Right? to connect with these communities, share a cuppa, and have a chat about wellbeing (and stuff). Maybe we'll see you there?

Christchurch Lantern Festival

The Christchurch Lantern Festival (Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th March) is a great way for the whole family to celebrate the Lunar New Year and experience Chinese culture - with vibrantly coloured lanterns lighting up the central city.

This year it's in a new location - in the Avon River Precinct - connecting with the Avon River, Worcester Boulevard, and Cathedral Square.

Find out more about the Christchurch Lantern Festival.
