The Blue Stories Project: sharing journeys out of perinatal depression.

In 2021, the Blue Stories Project was initiated in Whakatū Nelson by illustrator and designer, Karolina Gorton, and Perinatal Support Nelson, as an exhibition of portraits alongside inspiring and encouraging stories. In 2022, the Project is expanding its reach nationwide. 

Stories from Auckland's community and original artwork created by Karolina will be exhibited from 2 September to 30 September at the Pukekohe Library, with a special opening at 1pm on 2 Sep.

You are invited to come along and connect with these storytellers and the stories that so often remain untold.

This exhibition has been created in association with Well Women Franklin and Kidz Need Dadz.

The Blue Stories Project supports activities that encourage rerekē mō te pai (change for the better) and te kotahitanga i roto i te kanorautanga (unity in diversity).

This is a project that creates a culture of supporting ALL women and their families. It educates communities and normalises the topic of perinatal depression.

During Aotearoa New Zealand’s Mental Health Awareness Week, the Blue Stories Project is launching a nationwide poster campaign to promote awareness of perinatal depression. Look out for our posters on a bollard near you.
