The Oranga Hinengaro System and Service Framework identifies the core components of a contemporary mental health and addiction system with a 10-year view. It provides guidance for those responsible for publicly funded health system policy, design, service commissioning, and delivery.
It sets out:
- core principles identified by Māori and people with lived experience that should underpin the system and services
- critical shifts required to move towards a future system that supports pae ora (healthy futures)
- the types of services that should be accessible and available to individuals, whānau and communities.
It is not intended to determine how services are delivered at a regional or local level and does not provide detailed descriptions of services, as this will need to be informed by local communities’ needs and aspirations.
Developing an Oranga Hinengaro System and Service Framework was one of the key actions of Kia Manawanui Aotearoa – long term pathway to mental wellbeing.
This framework is the next step towards the vision set out in Kia Manawanui of an equitable and thriving Aotearoa where mental wellbeing is promoted and protected, people are supported to stay well, and they can get the support they need, when and where they need it.
