Meera Patel

Kia ora,

I was born in London and grew up in Zambia before making New Zealand my home. I’ve spent the last seven years working in various roles across the disability sector, mental health, and addiction fields while completing my university studies. I have recently completed my Masters in Psychology with my research focused on parental depression and family cohesion.

I’m so excited to be part of the LifeKeepers team as I am incredibly passionate about suicide prevention.

I remember undertaking the LifeKeepers e-Learning training back in 2019 and really enjoyed it. I have learned and used a lot of useful skills this e-Learning platform provides.

I am incredibly grateful to have been given the opportunity to work for Le Va and share in the LifeKeepers Kaupapa, four years later! I look forward to coordinating the LifeKeepers programme, creating communities of C.A.R.E.

In my free time, I volunteer in the community, watch Grey’s Anatomy re-runs or you can find me exercising self-care by climbing a mountain somewhere!
