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 never 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 use our voice to raise awareness for mental health and well-being. Perhaps consider sharing a cuppa with someone you know who could use the support or challenge your family and friends to unplug from social media for the entire month to improve their 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.
Don’t forget, this month also coincides with World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10th) followed by Mental Health Awareness Week (23 - 29 September) and Mental Health Awareness Day on October 10th.
However you choose to take part, feel free to tag us in your posts + use the following hashtag so we can see how you’re cultivating better mental health for yourself or in your community this month:

Our female tabby cat went missing on the morning of Sunday 6 October.
She three years old and is microchipped.
She has a black stripe starting at her shoulders going down the centre of her back, to the tip of her tail. Her tail is also quite long for her body.
She is a fairly timid cat and she is likely hiding under a house or in a shed.
Please if you live around the Richmond area (we on North Avon Road between Crystal and North Parade), could you check your sheds and garages.
There was a potential sighting around 17 and 19A Crystal Street and 12, 20 and 24 Petrie Street. If you live at these addresses please check in sheds, garages or under the house - otherwise call me and I am happy to come and check.
We really want her home.
We know life insurance is important, but we often put it off thinking we’ll get to it later.
Everyone’s circumstances are different. However, there are important life stages where you may want to consider life insurance:
● wedding planning
● having a child
● buying a house
● writing a will
