Give a little campaign launch:
We have launched a fundraising campaign to help raise money to help enrich our members lives and experiences at Te Ata. The campaign has some short term and long term financial goals. All money raised will directly benefit our members. Any support you can show, whether you donate or spread the word would be greatly appreciated.

Take it from us radio interview:
Te Ata members have been asked if they would like to do a live radio interview and speak about their experience at the centre and their lived experiences with mental health. There will also be information about our 20th anniversary celebrations. We will have 3 people representing us and we look forward to supporting them and tuning in on the day.
They will be doing a 1 hour segment on a mental health advocacy forum called 'Take it from us' hosted by Sheldon, on Planet.fm The broadcast will be on September 11th from 12.30pm - 1.30om. If you live in Auckland you can tune into the station at 104.6FM otherwise you can stream from their website by clicking here.
There is also an amazing archive of all the previous guests who have spoken with Sheldon. Who share invaluable information about their experiences with mental health and other useful information. After the show is aired we will post an update with links on how to hear it so you don't miss out!
Big thank you to Sheldon for giving this oppurtunity for our members to share their stories and for his mental health advocacy.
