Let's make New Zealand 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 discrimination. We're proud as New Zealanders to have embraced difference in so many ways. However, people are discriminated against every day because of prejudice and stereotypes about mental illness. 

Our Step Forward campaign is asking people to step forward to end mental illness discrimination. Thousands of people have already shown their support. You can join them!
