Mathijs Luccasen

I was born in the Netherlands, but grew up in rural New Zealand, which means I like cheese and can drive a tractor. I joined the Faculty of Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies at the Open University in August 2015. After originally training as an occupational therapist, I have worked clinically in mental health services in both England and New Zealand for a number of years. Immediately prior to starting work at the Open University I was a lecturer and research fellow at the Department of Psychological Medicine, University of Auckland. I’m passionate about the mental health of children and young people, and in particular about the mental wellbeing of sex, sexuality and gender diverse youth. I’m the co-chair (production) for K314 Approaches to mental health, which is in its first year in presentation. I completed a PGDipHSc as a part-time distance-based student whilst working full-time, so have had some experience of juggling work commitments and study demands.
