Maybe the real gift was the friends we made along the way... 🎁💫

Research shows that developing good social connections (with our friends, whānau, and even pets) can help us live happier, healthier, and longer lives! 💝 In fact, the quality of our social ties is one of the most important predictors of overall wellbeing.

So this holiday, remember to spend plenty of time with your loved ones - it’s the gift that keeps on giving! 🎄

Navigating friendships can be hard sometimes, right? 🤝

Friendships start with shared interests and lots of laughs, but as we grow closer, differences can become more apparent...

From music tastes to punctuality, values to tidiness – differences are natural and totally OK.
It’s how we handle these differences that shape the quality of our friendships. 🤔

Being a person who can handle disagreements (think: respect, kindness, fairness, and assertiveness) helps you maintain your integrity, no matter where the friendship takes you. 💪💯

Not long ago, a high school principal contacted us with a question about why Headstrong was exclusively available as an app. The principal believed it would be easier for students if there was a web version accessible on desktop computers.

We listened. Today, we are excited to share that the Headstrong web version is now here! 🖥️🧑‍💻

Do you want to help shape an app that empowers youth just like you? 💪🧠

We’re committed to helping rangatahi navigate life’s challenges, but we can’t do that by relying on our 25-55 year old minds alone… 😬 We need young minds like yours!

If you’re interested, we’d love you to apply to join our Youth Advisory Group ✨✨

Can’t wait for your thoughts to directly impact the app and therefore the mental health of teens in Aotearoa!

Aroha is still available via the app, alongside new content and more chatbots tools.
