Giving people the confidence to recognise, relate and respond to people experiencing mental health challenges.



Blueprint for Learning training reflects a philosophy of recovery and empowerment using best practice to help people become full and active members of their communities.

Our workshops use adult education principles, with a variety of activities, videos and teaching tools to cater for different learning styles of participants. In addition, our expert facilitators bring a wealth of professional and personal experience to the topics covered.

Participants will receive a workbook with MH101® notes, additional reading, a directory for support and assistance, and access to a post-workshop e-learning module to assist them to apply what they have learnt.

The Ministry of Health funds a number of workshops throughout the country each year. Participant numbers are limited to five per organisation per workshop. Contact us to check your eligibility

The workshop is also available for purchase.
