As part of Like Minds, Like Mine, we work to end mental distress prejudice, discrimination and social exclusion

More than half of all New Zealanders will experience mental distress or illness in their lifetime.

That's a lot of Kiwis – it could be you, your whānau, workmates or friends.

Despite this, people with mental distress are often judged and discriminated against in their communities and workplaces, and in Aotearoa’s institutions, legislation, services and the media. Discriminating against people can cause them to feel isolated and excluded from many of life’s opportunities - and is one of the biggest barriers to their recovery.
Like Minds, Like Mine, one of the first national programmes in the world to stand up and speak out against mental distress prejudice and discrimination, works to change that. 

The Mental Health Foundation has been a funded partner of Like Minds, Like Mine for over a decade, and lead the national co-ordination and communications for the programme.
