Getting Through Together / About Getting through together

Getting through together – Whāia E Tātou Te Pae Tawhiti is a national mental health and wellbeing campaign brought to you by the team at All Right? – Community and Public Health (a division of the Canterbury District Health Board) and the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.

This campaign will help New Zealanders get through the aftermath of Covid-19 – together. Our whakataukī, Whāia E Tātou Te Pae Tawhiti means we’re working together, as a nation, to pursue our future.

Getting Through Together is a campaign for you, developed by people who are living this right alongside you. We’re a team made up of public health specialists, health promoters, Te Ao Māori experts, community engagement specialists, writers, strategists, digital whizzes, marketers, web developers, and educators.

We’re using the expertise we’ve developed over many years – including running All Right? (a world-leading disaster-recovery campaign developed to start a population-wide conversation about wellbeing after Canterbury’s earthquakes) – to share the things we know are important to build and maintain mental health and wellbeing in the toughest of times. We’re counting on you to keep in touch with us and share what you know. Together, we’ll continue to learn what makes us feel good, what is really hard, how to connect with each other, move our bodies and look after each other.

We’ll be here for as long as we’re needed. We’re continuing to connect with other organisations, groups and communities who are already doing the mahi that matters and working to understand how we can support their work.

We’ll be on your TV, your radio, your social media, in your supermarkets and your pharmacies whenever we can. Follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter – we’ll be there every day, getting through together. Register for updates here

Kia kaha, arohanui, mauri tū, mauri ora.
