This summer let's be a caring community.
Connecting is about being there for others, talking and listening, and feeling and building a sense of belonging.
Just ask what you can do. Just Listen. You don’t have to know all the answers.
CONNECTING with others including colleagues, friends, whānau and the wider community promotes wellbeing, and helps build a support network for when times get tough.
If someone you know is experiencing mental distress:
- you don’t have to know all the answers
- talking about it can be awkward. Do it anyway
- calling them names doesn’t help
- don’t leave them out. Keep them involved.
Keep practicing the 5 ways to wellbeing – store credits for when the times get tough.
