Psychological First Aid (PFA)

Supporting and Caring for our People

PowerNet have a Psychological First Aid (PFA) programme in place to support all staff and their family and whanau.  PFA is a humane, caring, compassionate response that primarily addresses the practical needs and concerns in those suffering from distressing and challenging life events.

Our motto “We Care not Cure”.  The welfare support team are here to care and assist our people to access resources that work for them and suit their requirements.  We are the fence at the top of the cliff not the ambulance at the bottom.

Our aim is to foster short- and long-term adaptive functioning and promote a sense of safety, self-care/efficacy, connectedness, hope and everyday resilience.

We (Welfare Support Team) can provide confidential non-judgemental support to our people who may be struggling in various areas or are faced with challenges in their life (but not limited to):

  • Suicide
  • Relationships
  • Drugs – Alcohol & Substance Abuse
  • Gambling
