Combating Stigma and Discrimination 

We believe discriminatory attitudes, language, behaviours and structures deny people who experience distress equality of citizenship. Eliminating discrimination is increasing citizenship, which is about shared responsibility – of the individual, their community and the services designed to support people in recovery.

Like Minds, Like Mine  

Like Minds, Like Mine is a national, publicly funded programme aimed at reducing the stigma and discrimination associated with mental distress.

Kites has extensive experience in design of delivery of education and training initatives to address stigma and discrimination.  Our current focus is working with recruits at the Royal New Zealand Police College.

We offer a number of workshops that can support change in behaviours and attitudes toward people who experience distress.

Like Minds Wellington and Te Roopu Pookai Taaniwhaniwha ran a  Like Minds Wellington Film Competition in 2011 and 2012. The competition called for short films from 30 seconds to two minutes long exploring the theme ‘Be there. Stay involved with people experiencing mental distress.’

Almost half of all New Zealanders will experience mental distress at some time in their life. Like Minds Wellington promotes the message ‘Be there. Stay involved’ with people who experience mental distress. We believe friends and family of people who experience mental distress want to be supportive and can benefit from ideas and support on how they can help.
