One Woman Walking: Hikoi for a Big reTHiNK of Mental Healthcare Choices 

Annie Chapman is on a hikoi across the length of the North Island to raise awareness about the need for better mental healthcare choices to be made available to service-users in New Zealand.

I have ceased to be surprised now by how almost everyone I talk to about why I am walking has a story to tell of friends or loved ones in need, utterly failed by the mental health system.” ~ Annie Chapman, 21 December 2012

Annie Chapman will be in Auckland from the 14th – 21st February 2013 (and in fact she may arrive a few days earlier than this).

So far the Auckland events in place are:

• Saturday morning, 16th Feb, from 10 am til 12 noon at Morra Hall, Waiheke.  Note: there has been a change of venue to allow for a more formal setting.  Instead of Ostend Market as originally planned, Annie Chapman will now be at Morra Hall, Oneroa, Waiheke
• A meeting on 15th February with colleagues of Brigitte Sistig re Yoga and Depression
• A second radio interview with “Take it from Us” (Feb 19)

Insatiable Moon Screens in Mental Health Awareness Week

The Insatiable Moon and Mental Health Awareness Week

Maori Television and The Insatiable Moon are proud to announce a special television
event as the climax to Mental Health Awareness Week 2012 (Oct 8 – Oct 14).

On Sunday 14th October, at 8.30pm, Maori Television will be showing The Insatiable
Moon, immediately followed by the associated documentary Lunatic: Destigmatizing
Mental Illness with Arthur of Ponsonby.

This event is being specifically hosted by Maori Television as an incentive to the general
public to ‘Take Notice’ of issues around mental health, and particularly the stigma
experienced by those with lived experience of mental distress.

The film is remarkable in being both popular and award-winning, at the same time as
exploring significant issues. It was sponsored by the Mental Health Foundation in NZ, and
the Solihull Trust in the UK. This movie has been used globally to raise awareness in the
field of mental health.

We write to ask you to take this fabulous opportunity of provoking discussion by promoting
the screening to all your supporters. With all the wonderful activities scheduled for the
week, The Insatiable Moon and Lunatic will provide a fitting conclusion, and a chance to
raise important topics for the New Zealand community.

Please don’t miss this uniquely positive portrayal of mental illness – these opportunities
come around all too rarely.

And don’t forget to support and encourage the good people at Maori Television for their
contribution to Mental Health Awareness Week.

Noho ora mai,
Mike Riddell
