Will you help keep mental health resources free?

Kia ora If you or someone you love has just been diagnosed with a mental health condition, you might be feeling overwhelmed, worried, or unsure where to go from here. That's where the Mental Health Foundation comes in.

They offer a free and confidential service for people to call, share their story, and be connected to the resources and support relevant to their needs.

There’s a lot of information out there. A Google search of “mental health support” returns nearly 4 billion results. It’s vital that people in need are connected with the right information - especially if they're at the beginning of their mental health journey. 

The Mental Health Foundation's resources are clinically informed, based on lived experience, and created for the people of Aotearoa.

Each year, they distribute nearly 1 million of these resources across Aotearoa. They make their way to schools, health care centres, and workplaces.

"I was out in a truck training and we got onto the subject of mental health. I explained that I had been through the mental health system. He unloaded and I showed him a couple of your resources and he felt so relieved. He thought he was alone, then all of a sudden he had something he could read and associate his feelings with."

Unfortunately, these resources are currently underfunded by $300,000. To keep them free for those who need them most, the Mental Health Foundation needs your support.

  • $50 will allow anyone to download mental health resources from our website to support themselves, or others for FREE.
  • $90 will allow mental health facilitators to share our resources, which give people the tools they need to support themselves and their loved ones.
  • $140 can help keep trained staff on the end of the phone able to help people navigate their way through the mental health system.

Donate now to support Mental Health Foundation resources.

If you have accessed our resources before, arohanui. If you would like to learn more about them – or perhaps even order some for yourself, haere mai.
