Mitey - building the mightiest kids in the world
"New Zealand's Everest is mental health. We have the courage to take on the world, and yet our youth suicide statistics show us we've dropped the ball. Mitey is designed to help turn these figures around. Mitey is an exciting way to teach our kids about their mental health - and those of others - at school, every day."
