Mental health resources 

It has been nearly 12 since New Zealand had its first case of COVID-19. During that time we have seen huge changes across every aspect of our lives from the way we work, the way we interact with one another, our ability to work and our ability hold on to those jobs to ensure we can keep the minimum standards of living. 

 

For some of us we have been well supported by those around us but for some the last year has not been so easy. There are signs of people being burnt out by the insurmountable burdens that they have been facing and trying to deal with during these difficult times. All this despite the fact that Aotearoa is leading the world in the battle against the pandemic. 

 

It’s important for all employers and employees to know that there are resources available for them to access should they need to or should they see that some working for them needs to.
