9am - 12pm
The South Canterbury DHB is partnering with the Good Programmes Trust to bring free Good Yarn mental health literacy workshops to the Mackenzie region again in 2022.
The workshops will teach people how to have conversations about mental health. This is an essential life skill that can benefit everyone - including parents who want to be able to have conversations with their children, employers who need to talk with staff, people who want to know how to talk with friends and neighbours, and first responders who need this as part of their skill set. Everyone is welcome
The workshops will cover:
- What mental health is and how to look after it
- How to talk to someone you are concerned about
- Signs and symptoms of mental stress and distress
- How and where to go for help and support.
The facilitators are all experienced people who are passionate about mental wellbeing and who understand the unique challenges small communities face. The workshops are practical, interactive and enjoyable.
