Mental Health Awareness: You Matter

According to the Mental Health Foundation, almost one in two New Zealanders (47%) will experience mental distress or illness in their lifetime.  

In support of Mental Health Awareness, Puatala alongside Alignz Recruitment held a wellbeing initiative and BBQ with the management and staff at Placemakers in Wiri, Auckland.

There were about 100 staff members present at the event and BBQ with 95% of them being Pasifika and Maori males.

We were blessed to have a special guest speak on behalf of LM4 Group, Sekope Kepu (Moana Pasifika Captain), who shared his life journey, the importance of mental health and how his family and faith in God played a significant part during his rugby career.  

Here at Puatala, we take pride in our commitment to the wellbeing of our candidates. After a long year of hard work, this was an excellent way to finish of the year, we are thankful to the team at Alignz and Placemakers for playing a part in this event hosted by Puatala.
