We are an organisation grounded in Te Tiriti o Waitangi. We have made a strong commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and improving mental health and wellbeing outcomes for Māori and whānau. This is front and centre of who we are and what we do.
We recognise Te Tiriti o Waitangi as the legal instrument that allows Government to exercise kāwanatanga in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Through our Te Tiriti o Waitangi position statement, we pledge to:
We are the kaitiaki of mental health and wellbeing. Our role is to be the eyes and ears of people in Aotearoa, amplifying the voices of our communities. We are keeping watch on what is happening in our mental health and addiction systems, speaking up and bringing focus to areas where meaningful, long-term transformation can take place.
Our vision: Tū Tangata Mauri ora – Thriving together
Our mission: Whakawāteatia e tātou he ara oranga – clearing pathways to wellbeing for all
Our strategic framework brings the key elements of our strategic plan into one place. Our Pou Rama is standing strong, grounded in the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and shining bright on who we are, our areas of focus and what we do. It is supported by our vision, our mission and our values.
