The Restaurant Association’s wellness panel made up of members and industry leaders have identified the need for more training and awareness surrounding mental health in the hospitality industry. It has partnered with St John and designed a training experience that addresses the mental health and wellness of those working in hospitality.

Participants will learn how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental health issues. Using a variety of best practice learning methods, including discussions, videos and scenario work, this course is ideal for anyone wanting to help recognise mental distress and what they can do to help.

The course takes place on the 9th of March in Auckland and spaces are limited. For more information or if you would like to discuss introducing a Mental Health First Aid course in your region visit
