Getting Through Together Digest: 12th August 2020

Kia ora. Mōrena team and special aroha to those of you in Auckland.

We know it’s pretty tough waking up to the realisation that those of us in Auckland will be going back into Level 3 today. From the rest of the country - thank you to everyone in Tāmaki Makaurau who is staying at home to help stop the spread.

While the news of cases in the community can be unsettling or frightening, there are some small things we can do to keep ourselves and others safe, and that helps us hold on to a small but important sense of control:

  • Practise good hand and face hygiene;
  • Keep track of we're you've been;
  • Stay at home if you are sick;
  • Take a COVID test if you’re offered one;
  • Physical distancing; and
  • Wear a mask

It's totally normal to feel a bit shaken and on-edge right now. These are truly extraordinary times. Despite the challenges we're facing, there's something we can't lose sight of... we've stamped out COVID-19 before and we can do it again. Let's get through this together, New Zealand.

Arohanui,
All Right? and the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand

Keeping each other safe

Check out these reassuring tips from Associate Professor Siouxsie Wiles on what to expect, what to do, and how to keep safe in times of community transmission.

We love your work Siouxsie! Thank you.

Remembering what got us through last time

We all learned so much during the last noho rāhui/ lockdown. While it's only for three days at this stage, it's a good time for us all to remember the things that got us through last time:

  1. Staying connected (distance, not distant).
  2. Limiting your time online.
  3. Having a plan! Sticking to a schedule or routine.
  4. Moving your body daily.
  5. Exploring your local neighbourhood (at an appropriate distance!)
  6. Going easy on yourself - sometimes just getting through the day is a win.

Our team has led the world in our response to COVID-19 and we can do it again.

Together we will get through.

Not all right?

We all need a bit of support from time to time. There are free help and support services available if you or someone you know is struggling right now.

Call or text 1737 to speak with a trained counsellor anytime - it’s free and completely confidential. You can also call Lifeline on 0800 543354 or text HELP to 4357.

Check out the Mental Health Foundation’s website for further advice on how to stay mentally well during this time.

Until next time, stay well Aotearoa.
And remember, we'll get through this - together.
