Terms and Conditions
Please ensure you have read and understand the following:
1. Acceptance of Terms and Conditions
By completing the online registration for a workshop, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions set out below.
2. Pricing and Payment
All prices are quoted in New Zealand Dollars. Registrants can pay via credit card or invoice.
3. Cancellation Fees and Non-Attendance
Any cancellations made up to 10 working days before a workshop will incur a $39 service fee. A credit note or refund will be issued for any remaining balance paid. Credit notes are valid for 12 months. Refunds will require a bank deposit slip (or other proof of bank account), which must be provided within 14 days on cancellation.
Non-attendance or cancellations made 10 working days or less will not be refunded and the full workshop fee will be charged.
If you are able to find a replacement participant, a service fee will not be charged. Please advise MHERC of your replacement before the workshop starts.
Free/Funded Workshop Cancellation Fees and Non-Attendance
MHERC offers limited free/funded workshops and due to the high demand these can result in waitlists. If you are no longer able to attend, please contact MHERC so your place can be offered to another participant.
MHERC reserves the right to charge a service fee of $39 to registrants who cancel less than 10 working days before a free/funded workshop, or for non-attendance on the day.
4. Subsidised Rates and Discounts
Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB) Specialist Mental Health Service staff, non-government organisations who hold current mental health service delivery contracts with the CDHB and students are eligible for subsidised rates for CDHB-subsidised workshops.
It is the registrant’s responsibility to apply the discount by filling out the applicable details online. MHERC is not required to refund or credit participants who have not applied the discount. Subsidised rates cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.
MHERC reserves the right to request proof of eligibility. If the subsidised rate has been applied but the registrant is not eligible, the full amount will be charged.
Early Bird Discount
Registrants are eligible for an Early Bird Discount of $10.00 if they register by the date stated on the applicable workshop. This discount will be automatically applied at checkout if available and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.
If a special discount is available, it is the registrant’s responsibility to apply the appropriate discount code when registering online. MHERC is not required to refund or credit participants who have not applied the discount. Special discounts cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.
5. Workshop Cancellations
MHERC reserves the right to cancel a workshop at any time due to insufficient registrations or other unforeseen circumstances. In this instance, registrants will be offered a place on the next scheduled workshop date. Alternatively registrants may transfer their payment to another workshop of their choice, or request a full refund. MHERC is not liable for any associated costs incurred by participants, for example, travel or accommodation costs.
MHERC reserves the right to send you information pertinent to your workshop(s), and follow-up information including relevant upcoming professional development. MHERC may also invite you to partake in applicable research or focus groups.
