The Mental Health and Wellbeing Commission opened its doors on 9 February 2021 to bring leadership and oversight to the transformation of our mental health and addiction system, and to contribute to better and equitable mental health and wellbeing outcomes for all people in Aotearoa New Zealand.

As a newly established organisation, this is a great time to join us and play a key role in supporting the Commission as we assess and report on progress with system transformation, monitor mental health and addiction services, and advocate for the collective interests of people with lived experience of mental distress and/or addiction.

As a Te Tiriti o Waitangi-grounded organisation, we are committed to fulfilling our responsibility as an independent Crown Entity to honour Te Tiriti o Waitangi and work in partnership with Māori as tangata whenua. We want our workforce to be a reflection of our communities across Aotearoa and are actively seeking applications from people who represent that diversity.

Here, you can find out more about you can apply your skills and experience to the work of the Commission, check out current vacancies and apply for them, or register your interest in future job opportunities.
