First aid training could be a crucial step in our fight for better mental health in New Zealand. Emily Writes looks into what it means to be a “mental health first aider” in the workplace.


We provide a range of mental health first aid training to help organisations look after the wellbeing of their staff and ensure a confidence level in responding well to people experiencing mental health challenges. By using a conversational framework to help gauge how someone is at a moment in time, you are more able to find out what someone might need in that specific moment to help them feel better or refer them on to other professional supports.


We are really proud of the organisations that have taken the bold step to upskill their people with mental health first response skills training. We are seeing a massive impact with this training  120,000 supportive conversations happening per year, throughout 100+ organisations and communities – many of which have saved lives.


We stand tall knowing that the ripple effect spreads further than we can measure.

Thank you Emily Writes from the Spinoff for this awesome write-up! and epic work to the good humans at Flick Electric Co. who are leading by example in this space.
