It forms the first Mind Health (TM) principle and creates a foundation for people who are keen to live confidently and to thrive in their life. Richard has spoken about the ‘Centred’ principles to many groups of people who have felt lighter and more confident as they have left the venue, intending to put in place the principles of change. ‘Centred’ will provide people with a handbook/workbook for those who want to work on change in their lives with or without hearing any of Richard's presentations.

Fires, floods and other nasties
If there has been a natural (or man made) disaster in your country, like fires, floods or even terrorism, and you'd like to support the groups in that area, depending which country you give from, we'll make sure these groups get help. The money will go to celebration items (like Christmas books or birthday gifts) and financial support of the local groups affected.
Families at risk
We're connecting with families who don't always see the value of mainly music sessions first off - but when they attend other services provided by agencies and participate, their smiles return as they connect with their child. It fills mum's life and develops the bond with her children.
Mental wellness
We have many stories where mothers say, "I went to my GP. I was told to go on medication. I found mainly music. I don't need medication at all." Post natal depression, social isolation, and anxiety can stop anyone in their tracks. Contributing to this fund in NZ will assist the sessions held at Walsh Trust, where mothers have been hospitalised for their PND. Contributing in Australia will assist sessions for families experiencing the effects of mental unwellness.
