“At a time when New Zealand is in a state of youth suicide crisis and thousands of Kiwis struggle with day-to-day life, a time when too many people think that clicking ‘Like' on social media is a way to connect with others meaningfully, it takes something incredible to get a group of complete strangers to talk about the big taboo: depression. It helps if you're a brilliant writer and actor with a very personal story to tell. And it helps if you break the ice with a very tongue-in-cheek rugby commentary.” (Joanna Page, Upsurge Festival)

All welcome.

'Shot Bro' is extraordinary. Brave, generous, funny, honest and uplifting, it has been travelling the country to rave reviews. It will be followed by a kōrero about mental health, depression and how we can all work to make Massey Wellington an inclusive, supportive campus where everybody feels valued. Rob will be joined in the kōrero by staff from the School of Psychology and the Student Counselling Service.

Brought to you by Pukeahu Ki Tua, Arts on Wednesday, and the College of Humanities & Social Sciences, Massey Wellington.
