Have your say on how we monitor the mental health and addiction system
Consultation is now open on He Ara Āwhina (Pathways to Support), a framework that describes what an ideal mental health and addiction system looks like.
He Ara Āwhina will set out how the Mental Health and Wellbeing Commission will monitor, and advocate for improvements to, the mental health and addiction system, and services.
Your feedback will help us improve and finalise the He Ara Āwhina framework. The Commission will use He Ara Āwhina to monitor the mental health and addiction system (including services) from 2023. In the meantime, we will publish Te Huringa, our 2022 Mental Health Service and Addiction Service Monitoring Report later in March 2022.
This is important work. We want your support so that everyone who wants to have their say, can have their say.
We especially want to get feedback from the following groups:
- tāngata whaiora (people seeking wellness);
- people with experience of mental distress or addiction (or both);
- whānau members, families or supporters of someone with mental distress or addiction (or both);
- people providing mental health or addiction supports and services; and
- policy makers or commissioners of services.
Copies of the framework and our key messages are attached.
Please share the information with your networks and visit our website (www.mhwc.govt.nz/consultation) to learn more and to have your say.
The consultation is open until 19 April 2022.
If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact us on LinkedIn.
Thank you for your participation.
No reira ngā manaakitanga ki runga i a koutou katoa.
