MH101® Rural Webinar

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


The MH101® Rural webinar equips people in rural communities to respond to people experiencing mental health challenges - both at work and in everyday life.

The training will be delivered as three webinars over three days via Zoom. Zoom meeting technology provides an interactive and engaging learning experience for participants and to get the most out of the sessions, you will need:

  • a stable internet connection.
  • your own device as you will be going into breakout rooms in Zoom, so you can’t share a device.
  • a microphone and camera connected to your device.

If there are multiple participants sitting in the same room, we recommend that everyone uses headphones. This stops any feedback or echoes on the online connection.

You are welcome to join the webinar 15 minutes early, to troubleshoot your tech with our team. If you are unsure if you have suitable technology to enable you to participate in the MH101 webinar, Please contact us before your first scheduled session, so we can assist with your technology issues.

MH101® Rural webinar is delivered remotely via Zoom, to participants anywhere in New Zealand. We can accommodate up to 25 attendees in each workshop, which runs as three two-hour webinars over three days.  Each workshop is limited to a maximum of five participants from an organisation.
