Mental Health & Wellbeing Support


First Steps is an online hub to support the wellbeing of business owners, managers and employees.

First Steps is a space that encourages business owners, managers, and employees to prioritise wellbeing and awareness, so they can continue to grow impactful and profitable businesses while living balanced and fulfilling lives.

Now, more than ever, business owners, managers, and employees are experiencing pressures, challenges, and unpredictability that are impacting their ability to thrive. They’re confronting feelings of uncertainty, fear, grief, anxiety, and depression. Perhaps a loss of control, self-doubt, or disconnection.

No matter the complexity of these feelings, it’s important to know there is help available to support you.

The aim of First Steps is to provide access to preventative support for business owners, managers, and employees, and in turn, reduce the number of those seeking it in crisis. We know everyone’s journey is different, so by providing access to a variety of tools, resources, and perspectives, we hope you feel seen, understood, and supported in a way that works for you.

First Steps is a nationwide initiative, provided in collaboration with The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment, the Ministry of Health, the Auckland Chamber of Commerce, and the Employers and Manufacturers Association. It is confidential and free to access.
