Explore your way to wellbeing during Mental Health Awareness Week
Mental Health Awareness Week will be held from Monday 23rd to Sunday 29th September 2019.
The theme of Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 is Explore your way to wellbeing – Whāia te ara hauora, Whitiora.
Discover the things that make you feel good and do more of them! When you uplift your personal wellbeing, you uplift the wellbeing of your whānau, communities and Aotearoa as a whole.
Get more information about Mental Health Awareness Week, including how to order resources. There are specific guides for individuals and communities, schools and kura and workplaces this year.
Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 is underpinned by Te Whare Tapa Whā. This is a Māori health model that describes health as a wharenui/meeting house with four walls. These walls represent taha wairua/spiritual wellbeing, taha hinengaro/mental and emotional wellbeing, taha tinana/physical wellbeing and taha whānau/family and social wellbeing. Our connection with the whenua/land forms the foundation.
Find out more about exploring your way to wellbeing through:
- the whenua/ land;
- taha hinengaro/ mental and emotional wellbeing;
- taha tinana/ physical wellbeing;
- taha whānau/ family and social wellbeing; and
- taha wairua/ spiritual wellbeing.
