Date published: July 20, 2012 at 10:38 am | Comments

This popular evidence-based workshop is designed to increase the confidence of front-line workers to recognise, relate and respond to people experiencing mental distress or illness.  Delivered to over 2500 people across New Zealand, this one-day workshop is in high demand.

Described as ‘the best ever training I’ve had in my entire policing career’, MH101 is making a difference in the ability and confidence of learners to know what to do and when, for clients,  colleagues, family  members and themselves, when it comes to mental health. As told by another participant, “It became clear that heroic responses or great deeds are not required. It is within the capacity of anyone to react appropriately”.

The one day workshop is offered by Blueprint for Learning, one of New Zealands premium education providers. You will work with expert facilitators, high quality course material and delivery and benefit from practice based learning.

The skills learnt can be carried through your personal and professional life.  Through learning how to recognise, relate and respond to people with experience of mental illness we build responsive and resilient communities.

This Ministry of Health funded workshop is free for people who work in non-mental health frontline government and social agency roles. Details to register for one of these workshops is on the attached flyer, or more information can be found at
