The Foundation is a charitable foundation that aims to raise funds to educate young New Zealanders about mental health and wellness.
Sir John Kirwan's vision is to build a programme that educates all young New Zealanders about mental health so that children are able to talk about, manage and maintain their own and others mental health.
The programme will provide primary schools with the best tools to support and develop mental wellness so that children are able to have open and honest discussions about mental well being. Teaching children aged 5-12 the skills to obtain and maintain good mental health will assist in reducing the negative impact that unsupported mental health issues can have on young people.
