Rebuilding Wellbeing

To equip Pasifika public health workforce with the knowledge, skills and confidence to identify mental distress, we are working with the Ministry of Health to get Pasifika families the help they need.

Le Va’s Rebuilding Wellbeing programme aims to ease psychological difficulties related to Covid-19. Central to this is the enhancement of wellbeing and support so our people can navigate their recovery and adapt after their lives have been disrupted.

We support services to enhance the cultural responsiveness of their work so that Pasifika communities are better served. This includes providing training and a toolkit for workers, starting with resources on understanding anxiety and depression.

Navigating Depression

It’s a normal part of life to sometimes feel sad, stressed, and angry, especially when we’ve gone through really hard times – depression is more than this. Depression is being stuck with these feelings for a long time and we start losing hope and motivation. It’s an emotion that can feel like we are alone in the deep moana and caught in a powerful current, struggling to stay afloat.
It’s important to know that feeling depressed is not a weakness; it is a common experience and with the right help we can get better.

We will be releasing factsheets in English and Pasifika languages soon. 

Navigating Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal human emotion that can feel like the ever-changing waves of the moana. It can be described as worry, feeling nervous or uneasy about something (or a situation) when we are not sure of what will happen. Many people can experience anxiety when they are faced with a new or unknown situation, or when a stressful event happens.

Check back with us soon for our latest factsheets in English and Pasifika languages.
