Face-to-face mental health and addiction literacy workshops resume under level 2

Article

As the country moved through alert levels, our range of mental health and addiction literacy workshops remained available by webinar, but all upcoming face-to-face workshops were postponed.

With Auckland moving to level 2.5 and the rest of the country remaining at level 2, we have made the decision to resume our face-to-face workshops outside of Auckland from Monday 7 September. Our face-to-face workshops will become available in Auckland again once limits on gatherings have been lifted.

The health and wellbeing of our workshop participants and facilitators remains our top priority. Every workshop will follow the New Zealand Government’s public health guidelines to ensure safety and reduce the risk of any Covid-19 transmission. However, we all have a role to play in keeping each other safe and we ask participants to abide by all safety precautions during their workshop.

  • Participant numbers are restricted to 20 to allow space for physical distancing.
  • Maintain a 1 metre distance from the other workshop participants and the facilitators.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available at every workshop. Participants are encouraged to wash their hands or sanitise regularly.
  • Workshop attendance will be recorded but participants are encouraged to sign in at the venue using the NZ COVID Tracer app.
  • Participants are welcome to wear a face covering throughout their workshop if they wish to do so.
  • Do not attend a workshop if you are unwell.
  • Participants will be asked to leave the workshop if they become unwell or show cold or flu symptoms.
  • If you travel to the workshop on public transport, you must use a face covering as is legally mandated under level 2.

If you have any concerns ahead of attending your workshop, please contact the Blueprint for Learning team.
