Mental Health + Well-Being - September 1st to 30th 😌

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

Did you know 1 in 4 New Zealand adults will suffer from a mental disorder or distress at some point in their lives? When they do, let’s make sure they don’t have to go it alone. To create safer, more caring communities we need to not only look after ourselves but those around us as well.

For the month of September, we want to come together to share ways to boost mental health and well-being. For example, you could host an online catch up or quiz, call a neighbour who lives alone, challenge your family and friends to try a new hobby or move your body more to improve your own well-being. If you or someone you know is going through a rough patch, don’t forget you can call or text 1737 anytime for free support from a trained counsellor.

Want to share your thoughts? Let us know how you’re looking out for your well-being and helping others with theirs this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to: info@neighbourhoodsupport.co.nz

Freesias

Wendy from Meadowbank

I am looking to buy what I know as wild Freesias. They are the old fashioned cream ones that have a tinge of mauve in them and are extremely fragrant but any fragrant ones would be great . I would love a pot ( or 2 ) of bulbs . Thanks
