Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course: 23 Oct – 11 Dec: Tuesdays 6 – 8.30 pm, Psychology Department, University of Canterbury.

Do you find yourself always on the go, struggling to find time for yourself, constantly juggling and living in your head, rather than in living in the here and now?

If so, then Mindfulness Stress Reduction may be just what you need. Mindfulness is the ability to pay attention to the present moment with kindness and curiosity. It supports us to be able to shift from ‘automatic pilot’, live more fully in the present and reduce stress. This 8-week course will introduce you to a range of mindfulness practices and has an experiential and educational focus. Cost: $400 (incl. audios and reading material).

Workshop on Mental Health in the Workplace

The Canterbury Employers Chamber of Commerce (CECC) is running an ‘Understanding and Supporting Mental Health in the Workplace’ workshop as follows.

Given that nearly 50 percent of New Zealanders will experience a mental health problem in their lifetime, with depression projected to overcome heart disease as the biggest global health burden by 2020, there is a fundamental need for workplaces to understand and support mental health.

  • The current state of mental health in Aotearoa New Zealand workplaces – prevalence, impact and presentation
  • The role of the workplace in fostering a mentally-healthy environment
  • Where to start – and what workplaces can do as initiatives, practical tools, strategies and support for staff

Date: Monday 31 July

Time: 4.00pm – 5.00pm

Venue: The Chamber, 57 Kilmore Street

Member’s Cost: $20 koha (donation) to the Mental Health Foundation
