Event Details

The Auckland Street Choir and Awhina Mai Tatou Katoa present:
Reach Out: Positive Action for Mental Wellbeing.

It's OK not to feel OK. And it's OK to reach out for help

 

Awhina Mai Tatou Katoa and the Auckland Street Choir invite you to a free mental wellness event, ‘Reach Out’ on Saturday 24th  at the Ellen Melville Centre, sponsored by Auckland Council and Splice. The aim is to promote mental wellbeing and create a safe space to explore how we can be there for ourselves and others when dealing with mental illness.

What can we do to keep ourselves mentally well in an increasingly stressful world? How do we make it safe for those suffering with depression to reach out for support when they feel vulnerable? Sometimes it is really hard to know what to say or do. There is no one solution, everyone is different. So we have put together a fun and creative programme to incorporate as many things as possible and make them available for all.

On Saturday we will start with a powhiri, and then a relaxing yoga class donated by Jude Hynes from the Yoga Academy. Afterwards we will have a Q&A panel discussion on how to courageously reach out (whether yourself or to others) with special guests from the mental health field. And to finish we will have a joyful and uplifting performance from the Auckland Street Choir. There will be other workshops throughout the day, including a carving workshop by Awhina Mai Tatou Katoa, so don’t miss out!

This is a family-friendly community event suitable for everyone. You are welcome, whether you have been touched by mental illness or are just curious to find out what you can do for someone else. We hope to create connection, community and courage (and have some fun along the way!). Our message is haere mai, e aroha mauri ihu – I come with love to your heartbeat. We can’t wait to see you there!
