Feast 2019 raises $160,000 for youth mental health

Māia Health Foundation’s new fundraising focus has received a massive kick start, with more than $160,000 raised during last night’s Feast event.

The Feast was attended by 288 people who were there to support Māia Health Foundation on its mission to enhance Canterbury’s health system, taking it from good to great. It was at the Feast that Māia outlined its next mission which will focus on the region’s mental health facilities.

“You don’t have to look far to realise the struggles that our community is facing in terms of mental health.  While front-line staff have responded admirably to these challenges, we think we can do more – and we’re going to,” says Michael Flatman, Māia Health Foundation Chief Executive.

Since its launch in 2016, Māia Health Foundation has raised $7 million for Canterbury’s health system, $5.2 million of these funds have gone towards an upgraded helipad for Christchurch Hospital and improvements to child health facilities.
