All Right?

The All Right? campaign gets Cantabrians talking to their friends, family members, neighbours and colleagues about whether they’re really All Right in the wake of the earthquakes.

The campaign launched in 2013 after studies showed that, for many Cantabrians, the answer to that question was “no”.

All Right? – a Healthy Christchurch initiative led by the Canterbury District Health Board and the Mental Health Foundation – raises public awareness about mental health and wellbeing through its website and free 0800 helpline. Engagement with community groups provides information on how Cantabrians can improve their mental health and wellbeing, and get the support they need.
