Mental Health Awareness Week Donation - I Am Hope

In September, Henry Schein New Zealand participated in our own ‘Explore your way to Wellbeing’ #MHAW program as part of Mental Health Awareness Week.

Mental Health is an important issue for New Zealand and the industry we work in. In New Zealand it is estimated that nearly half of New Zealanders will live with mental illness and/or addiction at some point during their lifetime. The Dentist profession worldwide has significantly high levels of stress, burn out, and depression. We have plenty of reason to try our best to have open discussions about mental health and take proactive steps to maintain our mental health. Which is why we took the time and resource to get behind this campaign.

Daily challenges were set for us all that included a gratitude wall, lunchtime yoga, promoting use of our EAP mindfulness podcast, lunchtime colouring, and creating our individual Pepehas. At the end of the week the HSNZ team voted on which mental health organisation to donate $1000 to from HSCares and the final votes were... I am Hope.
