In difficult times, communities rally to support each other. Kindness and empathy go a long way.
When traumatic events occur, many of us feel a strong desire to help in whatever way we can.
New Zealanders were great at reaching out to support each other immediately after 15 March 2019. When events bring the Christchurch Mosque attacks back into the media or public discussion, it can be a good time to reconnect with people and check in on each other. You may like to go to public remembrance events to show solidarity.
Be aware of how you’re feeling and look after yourself too. You can choose to avoid social media and/or news media if it’s distressing you.
