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:
I am on the research to find out who knows what about Nurse practitioners vs General practitioners?

SeniorNet PN is looking for new premises - we think we have the larger rooms for meetings or training for larger numbers arranged.
We are still looking for a small office area or space where we can do some admin functions and have prospective / current members call and discuss their concerns and this area may also be suitable for one on one training and storing some computer equipment etc. Due to our membership age we would like this on the ground floor or a building with a lift etc.
SeniorNet around the world help those over 50 years with their tech concerns. As we are volunteer and a charity the rent is a concern.
Please contact me at email@example.com if you have any suggestions that may be suitable.
To celebrate World Food Day, we're delighted to share that we've launched a new Foodbank Project hub in Palmerston North!
Stu and the team at Palmerston North Salvation Army are grateful to receive donations made through The Foodbank Project. When people come to their foodbank seeking support, they are able to use your donation in food parcels, along with other essential items help get them through the tough times they're facing ❤
Sign up to become a Foodbank Project donor and donate an Palmerston North bundle today!
Huge thanks to our partners Countdown Supermarkets and Lucid - we couldn't do this without their support!
