What Works for Whānau

Over the last couple of months, it has been a privilege to have whānau share their kōrero with me about a range of mental health and addiction challenges they are experiencing as whānau.

Topics have ranged from where to seek help to  benefit the whole whānau; to navigating a complicated health system; to comprehending the treatment choices available and to ensuring a whole of health approach that includes the wairua of a loved one.

Iwi: Tuhourangi Ngāti Wahiao, Ngāti Tūwharetoa, Ngāti Raukawa ki te tonga

 

Ko Tarawera, ko Ruapehu oku maunga koroua

Ko oku wai maori, ko Tarawera, ko Taupō-nui-a-tia, ko Te Manawatū

He maramara o Te Arawa waka, o Tainui waka

E ko taku marae ko Te Pakira, ka tau mai ra ana uri ko Tuhourangi, Ngāti Wahiao e tau nei

Ko Kauriki, Ko Motuiti  hoki oku marae

Tēnei au he uri na Wahiao, na Hine Mihi

Tēnei au e tū nei e kokoia e ara e.
