This is a call out to unsung heroes with big hearts who have stepped in to support roles but have little training on responding to complex mental health issues.
We want you to be a Mental Health First Aider too!
The MHFA scholarship application process is designed for us to get to know you and the contributions/support you offer within the realm of mental health in Aotearoa. If your application is successful we will connect you with a fully or partially sponsored space on one of our MHFA courses in Wellington.
We welcome applications from those who are out there in Aotearoa using their time to support the mental health of others. That contribution could present itself in a range of different ways but it’s likely that empathy will be at the core of how you operate. Our scholarship recipients may be community leaders or carers, charity volunteers, or people who use their time to support others struggling with their mental health. These are the unsung heroes who have stepped into support roles, with big hearts but little training on responding to complex mental health issues. Financial hardship and other relevant barriers against attending will also be considered in the selection process.
The MHFA course was so helpful in enabling me to confidently approach and have conversations with people in my life who I think are struggling. Before the MHFA course I wouldn't have had this confidence and would've thought that I'd just be making things worse. Thank you for the knowledge and skills!Vanessa
Excellent in every way, best course I have completedRay Tuffin, WCC
I believe the awareness this MHFA course builds is essential to our humanity at this time. The care, sensitivity and experiential tools that Coliberate offers with this education is exceptional.Emily
I really enjoyed the session and the facilitator made it a really comfortable for a slight introvert like myself to participate. Mental health is an important thing for us to be talking about and checking in regularly with our people too. This course has helped me to feel more comfortable and aware to be able to support my team.Kylie
