Mental health and addiction

We’re working to transform New Zealand’s mental health and addiction system.

Kia Manawanui Aotearoa

Kia Manawanui Aotearoa is the Long-term Pathway to mental wellbeing. It outlines the actions we will take over the short, medium and longer term. This is cross-government work with everyone playing their part for the mental wellbeing of New Zealanders.
