Mental Health First Aid

April 11 @ 8:30 am - April 12 @ 4:30 pm


About 1 in 5 New Zealand adults experience challenges with mental health in any year.

This means that at some stage, everyone will have close contact with someone experiencing mental health challenges.

Would you know how to respond?

A Mental Health First Aid course will teach you how to provide initial support to adults who may be experiencing mental health challenges or mental health crisis, until the crisis resolves, or specialist help is accessed, using a practical evidence-based Action Plan.

Why attend?

Evaluations consistently show that Mental Health First Aid training improves understanding of the mental health challenges people experience, their options for treatments and helpful first aid strategies. Participants report increased confidence in their ability to offer Mental Health First Aid which enables early access to help. The training also decreases stigma and discrimination that many people with mental health and addiction challenges experience.

Who can attend this course?

Anyone over 18 can attend. Note: This course is not a therapy or a support group.

What you leave the workshop with

Apart from the skills and knowledge you will gain, you will become an accredited Mental Health First Aider with the option to complete the open book online test. This is valid for three years and then a refresher course would need to be completed.

You receive a manual that has in-depth information with what you have been taught during the workshop. The manual also has an in-depth list of resources of where to go and practical resources to assist someone experiencing a mental health challenge.
