Our mission is to see everyone in Aotearoa, New Zealand feeling secure in the knowledge that they have someone they trust to turn to whenever they are struggling. If this is your jam and you want to be a part of rapid change – we’d love to have you!

We’re a social enterprise working to upgrade the mental health capacity of Aotearoa, New Zealand. We want to see a world where we have healthier processes to support one another, where asking if someone is OK doesn’t have to be scary, because mental health is valued and accepted. We deliver a certified Mental Health First Aid course equipping individuals and people within organisations to know how to recognise and respond to commonly occurring mental distress.

Since delivering our first course in October 2017, feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and this course is now in high demand. We have certified over 350 people, seen incredible transformation in our programmes and have worked with a range of organisations including NZTA, NZ Police, Garage Project, Flux Federation and IAG Insurance. We are now ready to expand our team, making it possible to see even more Mental Health First Aid courses happen.

In this role, you and your co-facilitator will share the teaching of the 2 Day course, hosting sensitive conversations that people may not have previously had access to throughout their life.

You’ll be connecting with participants and coaching them to become confident to notice when someone in their life is struggling, and to have mental health first aid conversations to connect people to support.

You’ll play an active role in responding to the emotional needs of each individual, and will be inspiring people to shift into a stigma-free positive mindset towards mental health. Every course will have its own specific challenges which will demand you to be self-aware, and able to listen, sense, respond and adapt your approach.

Experience in Facilitation / Teaching or Mental Health Support work is an advantage but not essential as full training will be provided. A keen desire to learn and a passion for helping people are our main requirements.

We encourage anyone and everyone to apply.
