Impact Evaluation of MH101®

MH101® is a one-day mental health literacy programme provided by Blueprint for Learning
under contract to the Ministry of Health. MH101® workshops have been developed to give
attendees greater confidence to:

  • Recognise mental illness or distress
  • Relate better to those experiencing mental illness or distress
  • Respond in an appropriate way by providing practical tools and ideas.

MH101® has been designed for frontline government and social sector agency staff, but is also relevant for anyone working in a community-based organisation (e.g., Citizens Advice Bureau, kaupapa Māori agencies and family/whānau based services) or a school or tertiary institute.

This impact evaluation was conducted by Malatest and published in June 2020. It focuses on how any changes in confidence, understanding and behaviour were maintained six months after the workshops. It is a repeat of the 2016 evaluation (also conducted by Malatest) and compares changes in workshop participation, usefulness and impact between 2016 and 2019.

See the MH101 Impact Infographic.
