I learned how I can help out my classmates

At I AM HOPE we’re about
normalising the inner critic
The voice inside all of our heads that has
us second-guessing everything we do.
The voice of doubt that beats us up and
tells us we’re failures, that we’re worthless.
Having an overactive inner critic is not a
 sign of mental illness, it’s a sign that we are normal.

The key to life is hope!
Be that hope

For the last decade we have been giving mental health talks in schools and communities up and down Aotearoa.

Do you need help now?

Government agencies are doing their best, but some kids are stuck waiting up to six months to receive the counselling they urgently need. ​We connect kids with mental health counsellors and practitioners in their region or online, so they can get timely support, without the added stress of how to pay the bill.
