Health and well-being are critical factors in achieving a high–performing, productive workplace.

Creating a workplace culture that promotes good mental health, where people can flourish and be their best, benefits both the individual and the workplace. Life Care works with organisations across multiple sectors and industries, empowering their staff with the knowledge, confidence, and skills to know how to recognise and respond to someone who is struggling with their mental health.

Our consultative approach is tailored to your industry, offering interactive, practical, and engaging courses. We work closely with you to develop scenario-based training and case studies relevant to your workplace and then help your staff apply the knowledge and skills they learn in a realistic and safe learning environment.

We have developed mental health and well-being training packages to help improve mental health in your workplace. All our courses are delivered nationwide by qualified and experienced professionals.

Testimonials

“The presenter related to all the staff excellently, many comments made on this by both field staff and managers. Course content was also very good and what we had asked for. Considering the short notice, the service was choice and much appreciated.”

Rachel Haapu at Fulton Hogan

“On behalf of all those that attended your First Aid Courses Thank you. We have had great feedback on the instructors for these courses. Both instructors were informative, easy to understand and made the course exciting rather than boring. Our participants all got a great deal from this course.”

Tanya at AMA

“The feedback has been extremely positive and goes so far to say it’s the best First Aid course they’ve ever attended. The course was very informative and detailed with staff coming away feeling very confident knowing what they need to do in any situation. They were also impressed with the training using the defib unit which is great as we have one onsite. So, I would like to pass on my thanks to everyone at Life Care Consultants and I look forward to booking more courses in the future.”

Norma Hartley at Flight Group Ltd

“I got around our teams today and had a chat about how they experienced our recent Mental Health training session. Everyone I spoke to were all really effusive with their praise for you. They said the learning was really well balanced in terms of presentation and activities and they enjoyed the small group work. They felt the material was handled well, especially given the gravitas of some of the content and felt it was pitched in the right way. The whole team appreciated the obvious expertise you have.”

Glen at Mercury

“As you are aware I have been a qualified first aider since 1962 and have at various times completed training with all known training suppliers. I was very impressed when I attended the refresher course in Wellington as part of my evaluation of the training you had on offer. When you arranged to run a course for Council in-house, I was blown away. Staff members were absent from their workplace for half the time span of any other training consultants, they all raved about the quality of the course, the content of the course and the presentation which was first class. Please pass my thanks to all your staff who had anything to do with this presentation. They all deserve a pat on the back.”

Lindsay Skinner at Porirua District Council

“The training was fantastic. The tutors were great and I got some really good positive feedback from the staff who said they really enjoyed it. Thank you so much.”

June Wright at ECO Maintenance

“I just wanted to send an email regarding one of the New Plymouth Life Care workers – Jenny Coombe. As mentioned during our call yesterday, Jenny has been outstanding to work with over the past few years. Jenny has a wonderful attitude, and many staff look forward to seeing Jenny whenever she comes on site to complete health assessments or courses. Our work relationship with Jenny is a breeze along with her valuable knowledge and experience. We value her work ethic and willingness to make anything we throw her way work in our favour. We really believe Jenny is such an asset to the Life Care team.”

Janelle Pomana at Tegel Taranaki

“I am just emailing to say thank you for the training. The guys I have spoken to have said they enjoyed it – one of the best they had done! I believe Brad Smith was the one who ran at least one of the sessions and he was particularly mentioned. Many thanks to all involved – its great when the trainees enjoy their session – makes it easier to book them next time.”
