Empower yourself to take control of stress and mental health

04/10/2017

CoLiberate have created a programme of mental health self-care and support to regularly empower people to take control of their own stress and mental health. Wendyl is joined by Bop Murdoch, one of the founding members of CoLiberate.

Their origins are in the theatre exercises used to build trust and to support acting vulnerability on stage, they’ve then applied these principles to mental health care, and developed a programme to encourage people to regularly exercise their own mental health self-care before getting to the point of crisis.

They’ve also partnered with a psychologist to create a workplace Mental Resilience & Emotional First Aid programme.

CoLiberate are also finalists at the 2017 New Zealand Innovation Awards, which is being held in Auckland on October 19th. Tickets for the awards night are still available, where you’ll get to meet and mingle with some of New Zealand’s top innovators - get yours at innovationawards.org.nz.

Join Wendyl Nissen on The Long Lunch, weekdays midday-3pm.
