Tāne Ora Alliance (TOA) Programme

Te Tihi has launched this 9-week programme designed for young tāne to nurture the four cornerstones of hauora, grow their own skills and build their own connections in their community. Working together with the Mental Health Foundation and funded by the Movember Foundation, TOA takes a holistic approach to empower tāne with the tools to live well and be healthy - physically and mentally.

Challenging the norm

Caleb Ihaia is a second-year plumbing apprentice taking part in the Inca Trail Challenge this September. He enjoys the work and has a bright future ahead, but it wasn't always like this.

Caleb shares his experience with depression and how he learnt the hard way that mental health needs to be talked about and better understood.

Find out more about what depression is and what support is available.

He waka eke noa

The All Right? campaign quickly responded to support the wellbeing of the Canterbury community after the Christchurch attacks.

The new He waka eke noa campaign draws on the skills and knowledge Cantabrians built up following the earthquakes. The name means "we're all in this together" – a reminder that we are all in the same waka, leaving no-one behind. It encourages people to think about where they're at and that others may be at different stages and that's all right.

Download and share the posters and social media tiles with your whānau, friends and colleagues.

The Mental Health Foundation was able to wholly fund 'He waka eke noa'thanks to the incredible generosity of our fundraisers – thank you for your kindness and support.

What's on?
