Website project management

Mental Health Foundation of NZ 


Healthy Communications is proud to have project managed the design and build of this 2014 Mental Health Foundation (MHF) website. Our input included:

1. Working tirelessly with the client taking a detailed brief and with the contracted designers and builders to come up with design ideas and two-section layout. The MHF wanted to showcase the work it is doing in positive mental health as well as provide an easily found section on how to get help for people experiencing mental illness and for those supporting them.

2. Putting forward the idea to base most of this website on short, engaging personal stories from people’s personal journeys and about the wonderful work of the Mental Health Foundation. The stories are illustrated with original, Kiwi-centric, positive photography of real people, much of which we sourced for the client.

3. Coming up with the idea of creating a mental health topic A to Z database relevant to New Zealanders and angled towards the recovery model of metal health rather than the medical model. The topics have been reviewed by a registered psychologist and some by a mental health promoter. Our writers focus on health literacy ‒ making sure the majority of people coming to the website can easily understand what they are reading. In this way people can more easily apply the information to their lives and achieve better outcomes.

4. Creating a new suite of electronic newsletters in MailChimp that align with the website and are consistent with its story telling focus.

Our team is continuing to work with third party providers to launch a seamless, professional online store making sure all sales are integrated with the MHF’s accounting database and systems.
