Counselling and mental health

There’s a constant need for qualified support workers in mental health. Make sure you have the right skills and hands-on experience to get a job as a counsellor, social worker or community health worker.

Do you want to gain an understanding of how an empowered mind promotes recovery and resilience within your community?

Study our programme with strands in mental health and addictions or community support work to learn the necessary skills to support family/whānau.

During your study, you will develop skills around mental and holistic wellness and demonstrate your learned skills in a practicum placement.

You’ll be supported to succeed throughout your journey. At the Manukau campus, you will have access to a Kaiawhina, a Pasifika support person, a Whānau and a Mā Tātou room.
