Presenting: Friday 23 November
Emily Arps is passionate about promoting mental health and well-being. Emily works as a mental health promoter for the All Right? Campaign (a health-promotion, social marketing campaign focusing on the psycho-social recovery of Cantabrians following the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011).
Her passion for promoting mental health and well-being stems from her experience of living with a chronic respiratory condition, Kartagener’s syndrome, and how taking steps to look after her own physical and mental health has supported her to feel more control over her condition.
Emily lives in Ōtautahi with her partner, George. At the weekends, Emily fulfils her childhood dream of being a builder, whether that’s by way of making a trestle table, ripping out the laundry on a whim, or making a vegetable planter box (in other words, Emily’s an active relaxer!)
