Te reo introduction

Ngā kōrero whakamārama e pā ana ki nga mahi e hanga ana he rātonga Kaupapa Māori ā hāpori o te Hauora Hinengaro, Hauora Wāranga.

Ki te whakatutuki i tēnei kaupapa hirahira, inā, mai “Māori, mo Māori, kia Māori”, kāore e taea e te takitahi, engari, he mahi ma te takitini.

Na te mārea o Ngai Māori i haere mai ki ngā hui Māori-ā-motu ki te whakawhiti korero, whakaaro hoki, hei hanga tenei taonga: Kaupapa Māori ā hāpori o te Hauora Hinengaro, Hauora Wāranga, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.

Ē ai ki ngā whakarite i whakaaehia e ngā hui, anei te hononga hiko kei runga i te paetukutuku a te Manatu Hauora ki te rāpopotanga o ngā kōrero mai i a Ngai Māori i ngā hui e rima. 


English introduction

Over September and October 2019 we hosted a series of hui with Māori, to begin to design culturally-responsive primary mental health and addiction support that works for whānau and the wider community. We did this to achieve the significant and important goal of designing a “by Māori for Māori and with Māori” approach. 

'Success is not derived from a single effort, but from the efforts and contributions of the multitudes'.

We know that it will take the efforts of the many to begin the designing of a Kaupapa Māori community mental health and addiction service.  We thank all of the people who attended for your invaluable contributions.

As agreed with and by hui attendees, the summary discussions from the five hui Māori-a-motu is provided via the following link. All of the feedback received at the hui will be analysed by an external Māori lens and the key themes will be used to inform the key components of the new services we will fund next year.  We will provide the key themes on this page once they have been completed.
