Renee McDermott

Facilitator - MH101®, Leading Wellbeing at Work

Tena koutou katoa. I have worked in the mental health sector for more than 20 years. Over the years I have held a variety of roles, including systematic advocacy, management of peer mental health services, supervision, workshop development and one-on-ones with people who experience mental illness and their families.

I have a Bachelor of Science (Psychology) and a certificate in Māori studies. I’m a qualified mental health supervisor and registered teacher.

I have facilitated workshops for Blueprint for Learning for several years and I love working with an organisation that I know embraces holistic and evidence-based programmes to support strong, healthy workplaces, families and communities.

Maintain your wellbeing

While New Zealand has moved to Level 2 and we are able to enjoy more freedoms and see friends and family, you may still be feeling increased levels of stress and anxiety. This is perfectly normal. Blueprint for Learning can help you learn how to maintain your wellbeing, and that of your whānau, during Covid-19.
