Youthline Charity Ball

Auckland

Next Rotary Generation (NRG) North Shore are proud to be hosting a Charity Ball fundraising effort, to benefit Youthline, as part of Mental Health Awareness Week 2018.

The issue of mental health, especially in young people, is ongoing and affects many communities, and NRG are pleased to be engaging with an established organisation that works with young people, their families and those supporting young people.

Youthline was created in 1970 to ensure young people know where to get help and can access support any time they need it. They have centres based across the country. Last year alone, these centres helped 41,000 people through their physical face-to-face counselling/mentoring services. 1 in 7 texts received by Youthline last year were specifically related to suicide, and 1 in 3 was linked to depression, self-harm and anxiety.

Funding cutbacks over recent years have meant that only 12% of the funds required to run their call centres are received from the Government, which equates to just $87K of the $800K annual cost. Proceeds raised on the night will help Youthline to upgrade their technology, attract more volunteer staff and enable them to meet their goal of having “every call, answered”, so no voice or issue goes unheard.

The night will be full of positivity, fun and entertainment, with a live auction, silent auction items and some great raffles. We will also have a live band (yet to be announced) so we can all dance the night away.

Tickets are $125 + booking fees, available from: https://youthlinecharityball.eventbrite.co.nz

Five natural ways to wellbeing

Connect

Me Whakawhanaunga 

Maramataka: Mutuwhenua

The moon phase today is called Mutuwhenua – it’s the last day of the lunar cycle. We suggest focusing on connecting with your whānau, friends and community in nature.

Focus on connecting with nature to uplift your wairua/spirit and those around you.

Give

Tukua

Maramataka: Ouenuku

Friday 12 October

This is the fourth night of the lunar month. Today is a good day to rekindle your connections with nature, re-tell stories with whānau and give back.

Nature provides for us – it gives us everything we need to not only survive but thrive. We, in turn, have a kaitiaki/guardianship role to give back to nature for future generations.

The moon phase today is called Whiro, the new moon, the beginning of the new moon cycle. A day where activity was minimal, a day for wananga/learning. This makes Tuesday a great day to Keep Learning.

Be active

Me kori tonu

Maramataka: Ohoata

Thursday 11 October

Today is a very good day for fishing, eeling and crayfishing, and a good day for planting which means it’s a great day to Be Active! Getting outside and exercising is good for your overall health and wellbeing and strengthens your connection with nature.

Remember to encourage people to be as physically active as their fitness and mobility allow. You don’t have to run a marathon to be active!
