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

“Just passing on the Project’s thanks for having Bryan as our trainer. When he was here a fortnight ago one of the attendees was Tony Adams, our Project Manager. I didn’t tell Bryan this until after the course finished. Tony was very impressed and said it was one of the best trainers he had ever had – kept things moving, was engaging and kept the topics interesting. Today’s course has included our Finance Manager and one of the senior staff from Goodman’s. Both of those have stopped by my desk and said how much they have enjoyed having Bryan. Please pass on our thanks to both him and the Life Care team.”

“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

“Arbor-Tek Ltd (Christchurch) have utilised the first aid training and refresher services that LifeCare Consultants provide for the last few years. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to any individual or business. Their online scheduling and booking system works well, and for the slightly more tricky bookings you can speak with a ‘real’ person or email your request through. LifeCare Consultants are prompt and knowledgeable with their responses to these types of queries. The actual first aid training they provide is awesome, the trainers customise their training approach specific to the industry that you work in (where possible) and every training session I have attended has been fun and informative.”

Natasha Norman at QSE Manager, Arbor-Tek Ltd (Christchurch)

“Jono was an absolute delight! We loved his energy and the way he was able to connect and build rapport with our rangatahi. Our group may be a little bit different from normal classes as our makeup are of young rangatahi disengaged from school, work and referred by the courts. So, for Jono to be able to build rapport quickly with them and keep them engaged through the session was awesome! The kids walked away with learning, and this was tested the next day and they are thrilled with their new skills! We would love to continue to use him through our time as we will be booking every 4 weeks and if his schedule allows, he would be our first choice.”

Lili Kawaguchi at Trow Group Ltd

“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.”

Karen Cressy at QSE Manager, Base Civil 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.”
