"In August, I will be running a 62km Resilience ultra marathon to help the cause both to raise awareness & funds towards an amazing initiative from the Māia Health Foundation to raise funds for a new Child, Adolescent & Family mental health centre in Christchurch. It’s a great cause to enhance Canterbury's youth mental health services and raise general mental health awareness.
Personally, I strongly believe mental health is just as important as physical health, yet it's not seen as a priority and often something to be ashamed of when you need help. It's normal to not always be 100%.
Sadly, since 2018 there has been a 140% increase in demand for this type service in Canterbury - 385 people a month reaching out for help and with only a few poorly resourced places to go. The current facility is dark, uninviting and for people who need this specialist help, a pretty intimidating place to visit.
The plans underway for a modern new outpatient hub will dramatically improve treatment facilities for adolescent and youth mental health services. While it is early days, the hub is partially funded by the CDHB and planning is well under way.
Funds raised will be used to help vulnerable people in our community be treated and cared for in an environment that supports their well-being. A place that they will want to go to for the help they need and to focus on being well.
It would be amazing if you could get behind this cause if you can! I'll be posting regular updates on my Instagram page of my journey to the 62km trail ultra in August. I'm aiming to raise as much awareness and funds towards this cause as I can - the sky's the limit :)
