Ko Awatea is running free two-day workshops on Mental Health First Aid for residents of Counties Manukau.
First Aid is the help given to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help given to someone developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.
In New Zealand, approximately one in five adults will experience mental illness in any given year. That means that all members of our community can expect to have close contact with someone experiencing a mental illness.
Join us and learn how to respond to someone in your family or your community that may be having a mental health concern.
