You probably all know someone who has experienced depression. This is because one in six New Zealanders experience serious depression, at some time in their life.
The World Health Organisation estimates that by the year 2020, depression will be the second most common cause of ill health and premature death worldwide. This is clearly a significant issue in the community and is barely spoken about, so many of us suffer in silence.
French Revolver Studio and Sophie Shieff from CrossingxPaths feel passionately about helping the community and addressing this issue. We have collaborated to host an event on 3 April 2016. All the proceeds will be donated to Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.
French Revolver Studio is an award winning hair salon in Auckland City owned by international hairdressing Artist, Brad Lepper. French Revolver Studio is situated in a large multi-purpose space with a Brooklyn loft feel. The contemporary and creative space is full of natural light, perfect for hair styling and a morning yoga class.
I teamed up with French Revolver Studio and taught a yoga class will all proceeds being donated to the Mental Health Foundation New Zealand. As a result of class we donated $450 to this cause.
A massive thank you to our sponsors for their contribution to our lovely goodie bags.
