As a prominent member of our community we invite you to become a Hero of Wellbeing by joining us on the 19th September to support PEPTALK’s impactful vision to transform the future of mental health in New Zealand.
PEPTALK's recently launched magazine has received high praise around the country as a relevant resource that is resonating and helping people at a time when they need it the most. PEPTALK is about making the tools for wellbeing accessible to ALL, and their mission is built on the conviction that empowering people to help themselves by actively doing things every day to build their mental wellness, is the way to change the trajectory of mental health in New Zealand. PEPTALK is not the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff, they are about going upstream and providing people with the tools to feel good and thrive, even during and especially in this tumultuous time.
Sample of praise for PEPTALK Magazine
PEPTALK Magazine is dedicated to mental wellness and it is BRILLIANT. My Mum told me about it, and I have since purchased a year long subscription for our family. There are two sections.. one is for ADULTS ( I particularly loved the secrets to resilience from Dr Lucy Hone) & one is for YOUTH, I think my nearly 8 year old will find it really valuable. There are practical exercises, doodle therapy, recipes, healthy habits, tips on how to be happy and how to actively make yourself feel good when you aren’t feeling yourself.

We love every page of this magazine - thank you Nadine and team - it’s awesome- it is saving lives with its knowledge. It is filled with fantastic wisdom and has been a really good resource to give youth during lockdown and they are enjoying their own learning about themselves through discussions in this magazine - thank you Nadine Hickman for being brave and putting your strengths into solutions for NZers education around their wellbeing.
Jo Lane - Manager Marlborough Youth Trust
I am writing to tell you that I think you have done an incredible job of your first Peptalk magazine! I have read every single page, loved it all and can not wait until the next issue comes out. I have learnt so many little things that are helping me get through day to day and built on tips and tricks that I already had. I recommend Peptalk to all of my friends and try get them involved so they can take something from it too. At the end of last year my younger brother took his own life. Until then I had lived an extremely sheltered life in relation to mental illness and depression. I knew it was out there but had never been directly affected. Right after Andy’s death as a family we recognised that while organisations that are encouraging people to speak up and ask for help have their hearts in the right place, this just isn’t working. When someone gets to the point of wanting to take their life they’re not thinking right. We need to stop them getting to this point. I was so happy when I read that this was your objective. To nurture and teach children so that they don’t end up in these situations and if they start heading in that direction how to get help early on. Thank you so much for what you are doing, it gives me hope.
I am just emailing to say how awesome you guys are and how good this new mag is! I have just received (and finished reading) my Autumn PepTalk issue and you have absolutely smashed it out of the park. I am a young shepherd working in Taihape and I am so passionate about mental health and wellness, especially focusing in the rural sector. This magazine is perfect, it covers all aspects of mental health in many ways, making it easy for different people to be able to relate and make connections. The interactive parts of the magazine absolutely top it off, you don’t feel like you are just reading a heap of boring stories, it feels like the whole thing is made especially for you…. it’s awesome to see such amazing content out there for everybody.
Sophie Taplin - Shepherd, Taihape
This is a fabulous resource and much needed. Knowing that 50% of adults will experience mental health issues during their life time these are conversations that we must be having! You are helping to make these conversations normal and relevant and it’s great that it comes from within New Zealand so it’s easy to connect with too. My husband even picked it up and said, this looks good can I have a read....he’s not normally interested in that kind of stuff so that was cool.

Trying out a new NZ Mental Health magazine based on evidence based wellbeing strategies. Also, no adverts reminding me that I’m not rich, skinny, pretty, spontaneous, fun to be around etc. ‘Women’s’ mags I’m dissing you right now!!
