Privileged to be part of official Royal Visit

5 November 2018

Our CEO Andrew Slater, Mel Grant (Special Projects Manager – MH&A) and John Francis (MH&A Professional) from our team had the privilege of meeting the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at an event in Wellington, focussed on initiatives to promote youth mental health. Andrew, Mel and John were invited to talk about how we pioneered text counselling in New Zealand with the 1737 service. They met the Duke and Duchess at Maranui Café where they spent time discussing the importance of destigmatising mental health and the pressures from social media. We’re proud to represent 1737 and Meghan asked to wear a 1737 badge!
