A message from the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand
It’s a tense time for most of us. COVID-19 is scary and it’s rapidly changing the way we work, socialise, travel, access healthcare, exercise, shop and live. We know many people are feeling anxious, stressed, worried and scared. It’s time to work out how we’re going to look after our own wellbeing and the wellbeing of our whānau and community as we get through this – together.
The number one message we want New Zealanders to hear is this: we will get through this if we work together. Connecting with people who make you feel safe and loved is the most important thing you can do to look after your mental health and the mental health of people around you. “Self-isolation” or staying at home makes this difficult, but not impossible. We’re going to have to get creative.
We also know that things are really tough right now for some people who live with mental illness. Stress and anxiety can make things worse. While we don’t have all the answers, know we’re sending you love and strength and our wellbeing tips below are designed to work for you (however you’re feeling right now). Our FAQ answers some of the questions we’ve been receiving.
You can free call or text 1737 at any time to speak with a trained counsellor – it’s free and confidential.
We’re also active on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, where we’ll be sharing ways to support wellbeing and asking you to share the things that are helping you get through. We hope you’ll join us. He waka eke noa – we’re all in this together.
Nga mihi nui,
The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand
