Take the Load Off

Kia ora,

For 20 years the Like Minds, Like Mine programme has been working to end mental illness stigma and discrimination. We’ve made some great progress, but there’s still more to be done to make Aotearoa a place where people with mental illness are fully accepted and included.

We’re creating a new online campaign called ‘Take the Load Off’ which focuses on the simple things that can be done to reduce the weight of stigma and discrimination for people living with mental illness.

A key part of the online campaign will be a series of short animated videos which will tell personal stories with the weight of stigma and discrimination symbolised through a heavy sack people with lived experience carry with them in their daily lives. We’ll also be sharing tips to help you take the load off for yourself and others.

We’d love your experiences to bring life to the campaign. To get involved please answer some or all of the questions below.

If you have any questions about the campaign, please email us.

How will my information be used?
