Promoting Mental Health First Aid and Workplace Mental Health:

Mental Health First Aid is an important initiative that empowers individuals to provide immediate support and assistance to those experiencing mental health challenges. It equips people with the skills and knowledge necessary to identify early signs of mental distress, offer initial help, and guide individuals towards professional help if needed. One Less Thing wholeheartedly embraces this mission, striving to make a positive impact on mental health within our community.


Sharing the Message:

Throughout the month of June, One Less Thing has been passionately sharing the message of MHFA with individuals from all walks of life. We have conducted informative workshops, interactive sessions, and engaging discussions to educate and raise awareness about mental health concerns. Our dedicated team has reached out to over 60 people, empowering them with the necessary tools to become Mental Health First Aiders in their own right.


Aotearoa: Our Proud Platform:

Aotearoa, commonly known as New Zealand, has been a significant focus of One Less Thing's efforts. We firmly believe that fostering mental health literacy within our local communities will lead to a more supportive and understanding society. By collaborating with Mental Health First Aid Aotearoa, we align our goals with their admirable mission of training 100,000 Mental Health First Aiders within a decade. Together, we strive to create a compassionate environment where mental health is prioritised and supported.


Making a Difference:

The impact of our work in June extends far beyond numbers and statistics. Each person we have reached has the potential to become a catalyst for change in their own communities. By equipping them with the skills and knowledge of Mental Health First Aid, we are planting seeds of empathy, understanding, and support. The ripple effect of these actions has the power to transform countless lives, making our efforts all the more significant.


Looking Ahead:

As we embark on the next leg of our journey, One Less Thing remains committed to spreading the message of Mental Health First Aid and building a mentally healthier Aotearoa. We will continue to conduct workshops, seminars, and training sessions to empower individuals with the tools to make a difference. Our collaboration with Mental Health First Aid Aotearoa will strengthen, enabling us to reach a larger audience and create a lasting impact.


Conclusion:

One Less Thing is proud to have contributed to the vital mission of promoting Mental Health First Aid in Aotearoa. Our endeavours in June have allowed us to touch the lives of over 60 individuals, arming them with the necessary skills to become Mental Health First Aiders. By partnering with Mental Health First Aid Aotearoa, we join forces in the pursuit of training 100,000 Mental Health First Aiders in 10 years. Together, we strive to create a society that is compassionate, supportive, and knowledgeable about mental health. Let us work hand in hand to make a difference, one person at a time, and ultimately build a mentally healthier Aotearoa. Kia kaha!
