Brian Colegate Kapiti Champion


During my 47 years living on the Coast, I have been privileged to serve our community as a District Councillor, to engage with a number of community organisations and to enjoy life membership of Kapiti Coast United (KCU). 

Since the public launch of my autobiography in December (‘Bi-polar Expedition - An unlikely lifetime journey’), I have been humbled by the number of people who have approached me about their mental health issues, most of which have remained private, often for decades. Family violence, too, ia a well-hidden secret, often denied through fear. Now is the time to really talk about it. 

My book has meant that I have had numerous speaking engagements to promote bringing mental health issues to public awareness. I believe this has given me the experience to tackle family violence issues as a Champion of Kapiti, and it has absolutely enhanced my passion for people to be able to speak openly - without fear or risk of disclosure. 

Anyone aware or experiencing such behaviour, should not hesitate to contact one of us Champions - be brave, be bold, have courage and speak up. 

I’m all ears, available on my mobile  0277 813 213 and most days from 10 am to 11.15 am I’m at the Mediterranean café by the main road Paraparaumu.  (Note In an emergency always call 111)
