The Restaurant Association of New Zealand and Ōra King have partnered with St John to bring this complimentary Mental Health First Aid Workshop to Christchurch.

This workshop will help Business Owners/ Managers gain strategies and skills to support themselves as well as staff members who have been mentally effected by traumatic events.

Learn how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental health issues. Using a variety of best practice learning methods, including discussions, videos and scenario work, this course is ideal for anyone wanting to help recognise mental distress and what they can do to help.

On completion attendees will:

  • Be able to offer vital assistance before more experienced help arrives
  • Have an understanding of the relationship between mental health and unwellness
  • Identify when a person may be experiencing a mental health crisis
  • Identify strategies for managing a mental health crisis safely
  • Know and be able to use the St John Listen to your HEAD action plan.
  • Identify agencies who can help and/or know how to get immediate assistance if necessary
  • Understand debrief strategies for self-care including reflective practice

Please note registrations are limited to 1 person per business as spots are limited.

This workshop has been made complimentary for all Restaurant Association of New Zealand Members in the Canterbury Region thanks to the generosity of Ōra King.
