All Right?

Our Work / 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.

In 2015 All Right? launched a new project, Te Waioratanga, in the lead up to Te Matatini the national Kapa haka festival being held in Otautahi (4–8 March). Te Waioratanga denotes the soundness of body and mind which is achieved through the practice of culturally appropriate methods to support wellbeing. The project features six beautiful black and white portraits of kapa haka practitioners reflecting on the part that kapa haka plays in enhancing their wellbeing and encourages a conversation within whanau hapu and iwi about the things that support positive wellbeing.
