Jo Lai

Programme Coordinator

I feel fortunate to become a member of the Te Pou family as the Programme Coordinator for Mental Health First Aid Aotearoa New Zealand. I am responsible for coordinating and ensuring the smooth deployment of all components of the programme.

My background is in Communications. Prior to joining Te Pou, I had spent my early years in tertiary education before I embarked on my exciting career journey in the world of mental health. My last role was the KPI Programme Coordinator for the Mental Health and Addiction sector. I worked closely with the Programme Manager and Sponsors group and maintained effective relationships with key stakeholders to the successful outcomes of programme development.

I look forward to utilizing my knowledge and skills to make meaningful contributions to the work we do.
