What is depression? Video by the World Health Organisation
I was talking to a guy this morning around Facebook and the use of it as a way of driving business or making sales. Now I am not an expert in this area or a marketing expert but we did have a few things to share and education for each other on the topic.
Facebook is a social network site so at times people can be more casual in respect to the way they share information than on a website. Often you want your Facebook page to lead people to your website or you may even just directly promote your product there. As we developed HisBiz we found it was really hard to describe our product or inform our customers what to do when they landed on our page. To some degree our facebook page is a melting pot of topics connected to our overall purpose and even personal interests - a social mix of stuff.
HisBiz is not a product lead service and we actually have no product. Lucky I am not trying to sell you anything :)
To some degree we are more of a lets talk and share what we know service. This is harder than it sounds on the internet as social media can be pretty one way. I share you read end of interaction. If I’m lucky you might like it. I have found that pictures of dog’s and cats can get more likes than HisBiz!
Once you take the information my commodity, which is the information is used. At times you may share the information and that widens the reach which is great. To some degree that is the purpose of HisBiz, to get information out and about, creating a community that discovers and shares tools.
I am always keen for more sharing and for people to share information with HisBiz so we can pass it on to others.
So if you are about sharing things to make peoples journey in life better or have some questions to ask join in and do something.
Feeling sad, stressed or maybe angry?
Life getting you down?
One day just like another?
having relationship issues?
NEEDING something to change?

Minister welcomes Money Week 2013
The Commission for Financial Literacy and Retirement Income has launched Money Week 2013 following the success of its inaugural event last year.
“Money Week 2013 is shaping up to be a fantastic seven days, with more than 250 events registered across the country. I’m thrilled to see more than 150 schools are also involved,” says Mr Foss.
The theme of Money Week 2013 is “Make a Date With Your Money” and runs between Sunday 1 September and Sunday 8 September.
“It is important that we all take an active interest in our personal finances. The better we are informed, the better financial decisions we will make.
“I would like to thank the team at the Commission for Financial Literacy and Retirement Income for planning this event and I would also like to thank community organisations, workplaces, banks and financial organisations for getting involved and helping Kiwis learn to better manage their money,” says Mr Foss.

Mood diary smart phone app released
The Social Media Innovations Fund has reached a key milestone with the recent release of the Phobic Trust’s mobile phone mood diary app.
“I’m pleased to see the Phobic Trust mood diary app is now available for free from the Apple Store, allowing young people easy access to an innovative tool to help manage their mental health,” Mrs Bennett said.
The Phobic Trust was one of five organisations awarded a one-off grant when the Fund launched in February this year.
“The grants were provided as a funding boost for existing projects aimed at improving the mental health and wellbeing of young New Zealanders.”
The Phobic Trust app allows people to keep track of the things that cause stress and anxiety in their lives, record sleep and exercise patterns, and provides one-touch access to key contacts in emergency situations.
Other projects to receive funding are progressing well. Youthline’s INSPIRE Me text message counselling pilot started on 22 July, and Zeal’s Live for Tomorrow social media campaign launches this month.
Like the mood diary app, these projects offer a chance for young people to talk about mental health and the things that affect them through relevant mediums like texting, Facebook, smart phones and blogs.
The Social Media Innovations Fund, a key part of the Prime Minister’s Youth Mental Health Project, provides $2 million over four years to develop and progress projects that use technology to help combat mental health issues.
As part of the Fund, four Lifehack Weekends were held throughout April bringing together around 100 young people who were given the opportunity to develop solutions to mental health problems.
Judges have reviewed ten video proposals to come from the Lifehack Weekends, and the teams whose proposals are set to move into Lifehack Labs for further testing and development will be announced shortly.
