Community Kōrero on Mental Wellbeing

Thank you to all who attended our community kōrero on mental wellbeing.  This inaugural Meaningful Conversations event provided the community with a great opportunity to meet mental health service providers and hear personal stories from well-known locals from tourism, mountaineering and multisports. 

We are so grateful to all our speakers, Karyn Munro, Taylor Rapley, Rike Andree, Mark Orbell, Mark Sedon & Braden Currie for giving their time and sharing their tips, tools and insights.  A huge thank you also to Niamh Shaw for taking on the role of emcee and keeping the night running smoothly.
