Kelly Atherton

Project lead 

I am excited to be a part of the Blueprint for Learning team as project lead for the MH101® programme.

I am dedicated to improving the mental health literacy of our communities and look forward to utilising my experience and skills to contribute to Blueprint’s work.

My background is in occupational therapy and I have recently completed a Master of Health Research.

Prior to moving to Blueprint for Learning, I worked at Victoria University of Wellington, most recently as manager of the International Student Support team and prior to that as mental health coordinator, both roles working directly with students.

Maintain your wellbeing

Even good change can cause stress and anxiety. It's okay if you're feeling mixed emotions about New Zealand's move to Level 1. Blueprint for Learning's new webinar Stress, Resilience and Wellbeing can help you with strategies to manage these feelings and your overall wellbeing.
