    Guest Speaker: Rachael Chalmers:Registered Psychologist from Anxiety New Zealand Trust.

    Rachael is a registered psychologist in New Zealand and Australia with several years of experience working with clients presenting with anxiety across all ages including, children, adolescents and adults. In particular, she works with clients of any age who are currently facing challenges with anxiety and anxiety-related disorders, depression and low mood, as well as challenges with daily life. Rachael is looking forward to giving a talk on anxiety at the event.

    This event is hosted by four Massey University students who all share a common interest in addressing the issue of mental health in their community.

    The Mental Health Foundation (2014), has found that anxiety rates in New Zealand women are significantly higher than in men; 7.7% of women have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder at some point in their lives, compared to 4.4% of men.

    This event has been created to raise awareness on the issue of anxiety faced by New Zealand women. We believe that an educational yoga class provides an opportunity to raise awareness, promote mental health and positively contribute to the well-being of women who are impacted by anxiety in New Zealand.

    No level of experience required, just grab a spot in the sun and take in the relaxing benefits of yoga �

    There will also be an amazing beauty spot prize from Skin Passion to give away ���

    All donations are welcome. All fundraised proceeds will be donated to Anxiety New Zealand Trust.

    Anxiety New Zealand Trust is a non-profit charity and offers treatment, support and education for anxiety and depression through a range of services for children, adolescents and adults.
