We are working to change the way our community thinks about mental illness / unwellness / distress / being human.
Nearly half the population will have one of these experiences in their life-times. Stigma and discrimination will be among the biggest barriers we face on our journey to recovery.
reTHiNK is here to help you understand that mental unwellness is normal, common and can be recovered from. We are an Auckland provider of the national Like Minds Like Mine programme, funded by the Ministry of Health.
Our big idea is to use public arts and entertainment to promote accepting, inclusive communities. From 2009 - 2011 we achieved this through the reTHiNK Grant. From 2012 we will achieve this with the Like Minds Big reTHiNK - a world-wide arts festival with a mental-health theme. Get involved as a writer, director, performer, stage-hand or regional event organiser.
