Sphere 12 provides IT support for newly launched mental health initiative.
Sphere 12 has partnered with Changing Minds to support a new online platform aimed at providing virtual wellbeing sessions for all New Zealanders. The initiative is part of a just-announced $3.5 million government funding boost to assist New Zealanders struggling through the Covid-19 pandemic.
Changing Minds is a not-for-profit organisation providing mental health and wellbeing information, advice, education, and advocacy for all New Zealanders. One of the organis
ation’s key objectives is leading collaborative social change projects aimed at reducing mental health discrimination, promoting social inclusion and improving mental health and wellbeing for communities.
Connecting with others through the Wellbeing Sessions
Changing Minds are providing free, virtual community events through a dedicated webpage — wellbeingsessions.nz. The site has just gone live and will be offering
a diverse range of sessions exploring physical heath, grief and gratitude, burnout, mindfulness and journaling, communication, supporting families and much more.
As a Managed Services Provider, we know how pivotal a well-functioning IT network is to the success of any organisation, and we believe Changing Minds deserves the same benefits from enterprise-level technology that our commercial clients receive.
Secure communication through Microsoft Teams
Due to the nature of their work, information security is paramount at Changing Minds. By partnering with Sphere12, we can provide them with the security and flexibility of a complete end-to-end Microsoft solution, including fully-encrypted communications through MS Teams.
Networking for Good
Lockdown restrictions have seen a massive increase in the use of video collaboration apps and cloud-based solutions to ensure business continuity. It's heartening to see these same technologies being used for social good, and Sphere 12 is proud to be working alongside Changing Minds to enable these essential conversations to be heard.
The Wellbeing Sessions page sums it up nicely:
Me kōrero kia ora ai tātou - Let us connect so we may all find wellbeing.
