Southern Cross has joined forces with the Pause Breathe Smile Trust and the Mental Health Foundation to unveil a new mental health programme designed to help the mental health of school children.

The programme will be free of charge and open to children across the country aged five to 12.

Southern Cross Chair Greg Gent said teaming up with Pause Breathe Smile was an opportunity to help build a healthier future for New Zealand children.

“Southern Cross has been looking for a way to make a tangible difference for New Zealand’s children for some time. Our not-for-profit ethos and focus on health and wellbeing mean Pause Breathe Smile is a great fit with Southern Cross.”



Psychologist and parenting expert Nigel Latta said the wider availability of the Pause Breathe Smile programme was something he had been advocating for years. “This isn’t just about how to deal with stress and anxiety, it’s teaching young people profoundly important life skills.”

Pause Breathe Smile with Southern Cross will be available free to any primary or intermediate school in New Zealand from October 2020.
