All Right? Campaign update: September 2019

Wednesday, September 4, 2019   Posted in: Healthy Christchurch Notices By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, resilience, awareness, technology, maori, wellbeing, mental health

Kia ora. Welcome to Spring, Ōtautahi!

We hope you've found time to enjoy the blue sky days, the glorious views of snow covered mountains, and the daffodils that have come out to add brightness and joy.

Spring is a great time to dust off the winter shackles and get amongst it. It's the perfect time to do more of the things that make you feel good.

Don't forget about these proven ways to wellbeing - if you're after a bit of wellbeing inspiration :

  1. Connect, me whakawhanaunga 
  2. Give, tukua
  3. Take notice, me aro tonu
  4. Keep learning, me ako tonu
  5. Be active, me kori tonu

The All Right? team

Our favourite new central city green space

Come along to Tūranga in September and October to sit, chat and contemplate inside a purpose-built pod completely surrounded by plants.

The Green Connection pod was initiated by Christchurch charitable trust “The Green Lab” (Formerly Greening the Rubble). It is an accessible green-space oasis, offering a calm and inspiring place for individuals to sit together and connect.

Some notable Cantabrians, and people working in the wellbeing space (including All Right?!), will be occupying the pod to have some quality chats with those who rock along in the week starting Monday 23rd September - to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week.

Keep an eye on the All Right? Facebook page for updates on the Green Connection pod conversations!

Parenting app to help children manage 'big emotions'

Some of our team have been partnering with the University of Auckland to develop an app to help parents of 5 to 12 year olds support their children and manage stressors and emotions in positive ways.

The app is called Kākano (meaning seed) and combines fun, goal based activities and family mini-challenges with the best parenting research.

We are currently looking for families who want to try Kākano out.
Find out more about trialling the Kākano app if this is your family.

Some schools are already involved in the trial. Choose 'Other School' if your child’s school isn’t listed.

Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori: 9th to 15th September

All Right? has created a new series of wellbeing activities alongside Haeata Community Campus that celebrate culture and identity and encourage Te Reo Māori

We've created nine new activities we've created as part of our Sparklers programme to help celebrate this year’s Māori Language Week. We reckon three of these could easily be adapted for use in workplaces...

  • Fill my… Whare Tapa Whā: Use this model of health and wellness to check in with your collective wellbeing.
  • Kei Te Pēhea Koe?: This fun game will get your greetings in Te Reo down pat.
  • Hikitia te Hā: A traditional Māori breathing and mindfulness exercise.

Each activity is fun, educational and great for team building.

Check out more culture and identity wellbeing activities on the Sparklers website.

Mental Health Awareness Week: 23rd to 29th September

Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) this year is all about encouraging people to explore their way to wellbeing by discovering the things that make them feel good and do more of them.

Visit the Mental Health Awareness Week website to get your school or kura, workplace or community involved.

Poem about daffodils shows superior skills

Taken the time to notice the daffodils over the last couple of weeks? Hagley Park is awash with them!

We had a snap poetry poetry competition on our Facebook page with a daffodil theme - to coincide with National Poetry Day on 23 August. We got some amazing entries, but found ourselves particularly drawn to this one…

Daffodils are sunny,
Daffodils are bright,
And when I win a bunch of them
They make me feel All Right!

You can read all the poems on the All Right? Facebook page. Thanks to everyone who entered.

He Waka Ora

A new website - He Waka Ora - pulls together the experiences of the All Right? campaign so that those supporting communities following a disaster know some of the key steps needed to effectively support community wellbeing.

Every community is different, with different needs, values and characteristics. But there are some key elements that are essential for a successful community wellbeing campaign.

He Waka Ora shares what All Right? has learnt so more people have the knowledge to support community wellbeing.

The Breeze Walking Festival

There's a lot happening in September and this one's definitely one of our faves.

The Breeze Walking Festival provides a chance for all Cantabrians to put some spring in their step and explore their region, from Saturday 28 September to Sunday 13 October 2019.

You can find out more on the CCC website.

Until next time, e noho rā
