Fair Funding for the Future of Mental Health

In order for mental health to have a future, we need government and DHBs to change their funding practices. The Fair Funding campaign is calling on the Government and DHBs to do just that.

For more information and to show your support for us, please visit: www.fairfunding.org.nz

Please support us by:

  • Sending an email to MPs and the Chairs and CEOs of the 20 DHBs (an automated email system is set up here: http://www.fairfunding.org.nz/support/thanks)
  • Sharing the campaign details on Facebook
  • Telling as many people as you can about the issue and asking them to show their support by visiting the website, sharing the information and emailing MPs and DHBs about the issue.

There will also be a political debate on the topic at 7pm on Monday the 28th of July at One Tree Hill College in Auckland. Further details to come.

Many thanks for your time and support on this crucial issue,

Laura

Chinese Parents Support Service Trust: Think Differently about Disability

The Chinese Parents Support Service Trust is asking the Chinese community to Think Differently about disability.
“The Unlimited Love” is the title of the campaign to change attitudes and behaviour that limit opportunities for disabled Chinese people in Auckland.
The campaign is funded through the Ministry of Social Development, Social Campaigns Team Family and Community Services.
The campaign will utilise Chinese media, such as Chinese Voice Radio AM936, Skykiwi (most popular Chinese website in New Zealand) and Chinese Herald (newspaper) to introduce a series of local and national disability services. These include, Autism NZ Inc, Blind Foundation, Deaf Radio, Circability, Elevate Christian Disability Trust, Mental Health Foundation’s Kai Xin Xing Dong project, Independent Living Services and many more. Beside that, Philip Patston and Dr. Huhana Hickey also shared their inspiration about their work in the disability sector.
Eva the CEO of CPSST hopes by introducing disability services Chinese people can gain an understanding of the services available for them.
“We hope for more dialogue among the Chinese community about disability by introducing the disability services.”
According to The New Zealand Disability Strategy One in five people, in New Zealand report having a long-term impairment.
The Unlimited Love has been running on every Saturday for 13 weeks on AM 936 from 10am to 11am.
