To celebrate Mental Health Awareness Day - we will be officially launching Whariki Hauora - the well-being initiative for people working in the performing industry. Whether you are a performer or crew, work for a film or production company or freelance, come along and find out how you can get involved, how you can access confidential peer support counselling if you need it, and how you can donate to the fund from your next production, event or performance.
