Te anga putanga toiora Our wellbeing outcomes framework

He Ara Oranga wellbeing outcomes framework shows how wellbeing will be achieved from both a te ao Māori perspective and a shared perspective, which also applies to Māori. Wellbeing will be achieved when all people, their whānau (families) and hapori (communities) experience:

From a te ao Māori perspective:
  • Tino rangatiratanga me te mana motuhake
  • Whakaora, whakatipu kia manawaroa
  • Whakapuāwaitanga me te pae ora
  • Whanaungatanga me te arohatanga
  • Wairuatanga me te manawaroa
  • Tūmanako me te ngākaupai
From a shared perspective:
  • Being safe and nurtured
  • Having what is needed
  • Having one’s rights and dignity fully realised
  • Healing, growth and being resilient
  • Being connected and valued
  • Having hope and purpose

The framework is also intended as a shared framework, which can be used by many people and organisations that play a part in mental health and wellbeing. It is designed as one of the tools to shift the way the whole system is working towards a wellbeing approach.

He Ara Oranga wellbeing outcomes framework sits alongside its partner framework, the He Ara Āwhina system monitoring framework that describes what an ideal mental health and addiction system looks like.

How He Ara Oranga wellbeing outcomes framework was created

The framework was developed by the Initial Mental Health and Wellbeing Commission, in collaboration with communities, and with guidance from experts in wellbeing and mental health.

The wellbeing outcomes apply to everyone in Aotearoa. The wellbeing outcomes are shown through both te ao Māori and shared wellbeing perspectives. There is no other existing framework that incorporates this duality and respects both tangata whenua and tangata Tiriti perspectives.
