Mental distress-related discrimination impacts peoples’ ability to contribute and participate in society. To do something about mental distress-related discrimination, we need to know more about it – how common is it, who is experiencing it, and where does it occur?

This report highlights key findings related to mental distress-related discrimination using a pooled dataset comprising the 2015, 2016, and 2018 New Zealand Mental Health Monitors (NZMHM) and a separate analysis of the 2018 New Zealand Health and Lifestyles Survey (HLS).
