All Right? wellbeing campaign

All Right? is a campaign designed to help Cantabrians think about our mental health and wellbeing, and ways we can improve it.

We've all been through a lot in Canterbury and there are lots of things about the recovery that cause frustration and stress. All Right? seeks to let people know that it's normal to feel how they do, and that there are things they can do to boost their wellbeing.

All Right? messages aren't rocket science – improving our wellbeing can be as simple as a moment stargazing, a trip to the park with the kids, a coffee and catch-up with mates, and a little boogie round the kitchen. This isn't intended to trivialise the real pain that many people are experiencing – it's intended to remind people that we can, and already do, take care of ourselves, and each other in very simple ways.

The All Right? campaign is a Healthy Christchurch project led by the Mental Health Foundation and the Canterbury District Health Board. Along the way we've received support from many organisations, including the Red Cross, Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA), the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Social Development, and Strategies with Kids – Information for Parents (SKIP).

You can share your ideas on what makes you feel all right at www.allright.org.nz or on Facebook.
