Mental Health Awareness Week


Mental Health Awareness Week is fast approaching and it’s no secret that financial stress impacts our mental wellbeing. The good news is that improving your financial well-being also improves your overall mental health.

To help fellow Kiwis out, we’re running a series of online webinars during Mental Health Awareness Week to help people identify where they may be feeling financially stressed and provide tips and strategies for how they could address and alleviate it.

To kick the week off financial coach and founder of, Hannah McQueen, will be joined by the founder of The Mental Fitness Company, Sue Kohn-Taylor, to address what’s causing your financial stress and give you actionable steps to reduce it – from both a financial and mindset perspective.

While men don’t stress about money quite as much as women, that doesn’t mean they don’t worry about money at all, or that they don’t feel their finances are impacting their mental health. To help alleviate some of that stress we’re hosting our first ever ‘Boys & Budgets’ panel session featuring financial coaches Roger Swift, Ray McKeown and Just Gauci (moderated by Nadine Higgins) to answer your questions about dealing with financial stress.

80% of Kiwi women rate their financial well-being as moderate to very low, and 70% of Kiwi women have admitted their financial well-being has impacted their overall well-being. So, if you’re fretting about your financial well-being we’re bringing back our popular Women & Finances panel session with financial coaches Katie Wesney, Shelley Palman, Elizabeth Blake, and Nadine Higgins to address what’s causing your financial stress.
