Let's make NZ an even better place to live
1 in 5 New Zealanders will experience mental illness this year. That's a lot of Kiwis – it could be you, your family, workmates or friends.
One of the biggest challenges for people experiencing mental illness is stigma and discrimination. It can feel like a constant, heavy weight that makes life more challenging.
But it doesn't have to be that way. You can be part of changing this.
We’re asking New Zealanders to share their experiences around when they’ve felt the weight of mental illness stigma and discrimination and the simple things people have said or done to help lighten the load. Visit www.taketheloadoff.nz to find out more and get involved.
