Supporting the Mental Health and Addiction Support Workforce

Across New Zealand’s mental health and addiction support services, there are thousands of people working hard to support people experiencing mental illness and helping them to recover.

Mental health and addiction support workers engage with some of our most vulnerable people. It’s important we ensure that our current and upcoming mental health and addiction support workforce has the tools they need to provide quality support.

We offer a range of qualifications to support the workforce to get upskilled and qualified, via on-the-job learning so that they can be resilient to enable the people they support to build their own resilience.
