Ngā Mana Hourua Our relationships

Connecting with lived experience communities and tāngata whaiora is crucial if we are going to do our job well – monitoring the mental health and addiction system, contributing to equitable wellbeing for all, and advocating for the changes needed.

We are growing our connections with lived experience networks, organisations and people, and are grateful for the contributions that lived experience groups have made to our work so far.

Some of the ways that tāngata whaiora and lived experience groups can be involved in our work include:

  • meeting with us kanohi ki te kanohi (face to face) or online
  • joining our lived experience mailing list
  • advocating together to bring about change
  • sharing your views, experiences and hopes for the future when we are monitoring parts of the mental health, addiction and wellbeing system.
