Kite Support

Our world has changed

Covid-19 has dramatically changed how people work and live around the globe. Living in isolation can bring a new set of challenges. It can impact relationships and how we stay connected.  

Our current environment also challenges how we manage work and juggle life with family and friends.

Taking care is important

Living and working through uncertain times can impact the way we think, feel and look after ourselves. Supporting yourself and/or employees through this time is critical.

Taking care will help you and the people in your life – family, friends and colleagues – to maintain wellbeing and develop resilience in the long term.

Kite Support is a unique app designed for individuals and employers to support employees through Covid-19.

Hannah Hardy-Jones

BA (Psych), PGDIP HRM  |  CEO/Founder – The Kite Program

Hannah is the Strategy Lead for Kite Support.

Hannah has an extensive background in HR, specialising in leadership development and employee relations. She developed the concept of Kite as a result of her experience with postpartum bipolar disorder after the birth of her first child, coupled with the lack of support and tools for employees she saw in the workplace to manage their mental health, focus on their wellbeing, and to improve themselves both professionally and personally. 

Using the principles of microlearning, Hannah created Kite to be the beautiful app that it is now. It launched globally in Feb 2019 as a tool for mothers (Kite for mums), and is now available as a template for any client or group to mould and shape, so that it is applicable and relevant to their audience- under the arm of Kite for Business. Hannah has a team of 20 consultants rolling this solution out across Latin America, USA, UK/Ireland, Europe, Australia and NZ.

Hannah speaks openly about her mental health, and has been featured in Forbes, appeared on TV1 Seven Sharp and TV3 The Project, the front page of The Press- as well as numerous magazines, radio, articles and podcasts. She is an active mental health advocate- with a passion for maternal and paternal mental health in particular.
