Together we can. He waka eke noa
Like physical health, mental health is something we all have and need to look after. There is no health without mental health. Taking care of our mental wellbeing boosts our physical health, creates resilience, helps us to feel happy, confident and secure. We believe everyone can enjoy good mental health and wellbeing – whether or not you have an experience of, or a diagnosis of, mental illness.
