Yesterday evening, our Board Chair, Hayden Wano, spoke to Kim Moodie from RNZ Checkpoint(external link), about the recent release of Kia Manawanui(external link), the government's long-term mental wellbeing pathway.

He spoke of the need for an action plan to bring Kia Manawanui to life and the importance of defining what success looks like for the pathway.

He emphasised the importance of talking to people with lived experience of mental distress and addiction and their whānau and supporters, as well as people working on the front line in mental health and addiction services, so that they can describe what success looks like.
