CLOSE UP WITH ONE OF OUR PEER SUPPORT WORKERS

Updated: Apr 30


Hi everyone, I am Johan Nel, a peer support worker. I was born in South Africa and moved to beautiful New Zealand 10 years ago. I have worked in many occupations including building, hospitality, but mostly as a restaurant chef.


Three years ago I decided that I want to give back to the community and therefore went to university at the age of 33 to gain qualifications to help people . I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Social Science majoring in Psychology with a minor in social policy.


Toward the end of January, 2019 I started working for Pou Whakaaro as a Peer Support and Advocacy worker while I work towards my Masters in Psychology. I am looking forward to helping those on their recovery journey.
