"A moving and entertaining workshop on mental health"

Who is the training for?
Everyone looking to understand mental ‘illness’ and mental well-being more completely for personal or professional reasons. You may be creating a story, supporting a friend, colleague, employee, family member, or client. You may even have your own personal experience of mental distress and are still trying to make sense of it. reTHiNK workshops are equally as valuable for supporting personal growth as they are professional development and are appropriate for all industries and cultures.

Concepts covered in the training:
Re-Think: attitudes and ideas about mental health, mental illness and recovery.
By hearing, holding and exploring multiple perspectives and making informed decisions about when each perspective is helpful or harmful to well-being.

Re-Late: to and normalise extreme symptoms associated with mental distress.
By participating in safe, interactive activities that increase understanding and empathy.

Re-Spond: to people experiencing difficult symptoms appropriately.
By growing personal skills and confidence to support the well-being of others as well as help to develop mentally healthy workplaces.

Re-Cover: from stress and distress
By learning simple tools,finding self-sufficiency and building your strengths to optimize your own well-being.

We have facilitated over 500 of these workshops/lectures since 2009. What participants are saying about this workshop:

“An eye-opening and effective workshop which is appropriate, if not crucial for any member of society. This opens further, anyone on a path to knowing themselves.” – (Actor)

Well presented facts, details, gems of important data. Mental illness well explained, helped set aside many points of rubbish we all have to deal with each day. (Builder)

"Want to find out more about authenticity when portraying mental health in your scripts or performances? This is a deal changer (Film Maker/ Script Writer)

"A group of us, from Hubbard Foods Wellness Group, attended the ReThink Madness workshop and came away positively buzzing . The workshop gave us excellent insights into how 'Madness' is viewed in the society, the myths that are commonplace and how to bust them and, probably most poignantly, the best ways to respond to people who have some level of mental illness. A few personal insights taken away too, I might add!

We all agreed that our level of consciousness was raised and it will now be another tool to add to our Wellness Initiatives at Hubbards.

Thank you Mind and Body. A great workshop overall, thoroughly recommend it to others."
(HR Manager)

"Excellent environment. Very good resources available". (Police)

“This was a great workshop. The facilitator created a safe learning environment for people to discuss their thoughts and ask questions. It was very interactive and some students claimed that it was the best workshop that they had ever attended.”
(Lecturer University of Auckland- School of Counselling, Human Services and Social Work.)

“I can wholeheartedly recommend this workshop for anyone who wants a deeper insight into how it feels to be mentally unwell, and how to help those who are affected by mental illness. I have worked as a professional in the field for over five years, and found that I learned a great deal. ”
(Lifeline Aotearoa)
