    Mental health issues are very common. They're the number one reason for New Zealanders and Australians to visit their GP.

    Physical activity has a critical role to play in preventing the onset of mental health illness and it’s treatment.

    MHeLP is a cutting edge Mental Health eLearning Program developed under the guidance of international mental health and exercise experts.

    Designed for the New Zealand and Australian leisure and community support sectors the program equips workers and volunteers with strategies to support themselves and others in times which are challenging to our mental health.

    It is completely free, self-paced and earns learners two continuing education credits (CECs).

    We encourage your participation and ask you to promote participation with others.
