Kia Kaha, Kia Māia, Kia Ora Aotearoa - COVID-19 Psychosocial and Mental Wellbeing Recovery Plan

NZNO warmly welcomes your feedback on this plan which provides a national approach to supporting the mental and social wellbeing of New Zealanders in the COVID-19 recovery period. This plan provides a framework for collective actions to support whānau and communities to adapt and thrive in the next 12 to 18 months. It draws on the directions for mental wellbeing that were laid down in He Ara Oranga: Report of the Government Inquiry into Mental Health and Addiction. Your input will help build a collective picture of how the nursing workforce is contributing to COVID-19 recovery and will assist with shaping a further iteration of the plan, anticipated for September 2020. 

Please see the plan below.

Please consider the following questions:

  1. Do the vision, principles and focus areas in the plan resonate with you? 
  2. In what ways does your organisation see itself contributing to the focus areas in the plan?
  3. What do you think the critical factors to ensure success of this plan?
  4. What positive examples of actions to support mental and social wellbeing are you aware of?

Do you think there is anything missing from the plan?

Please send feedback to by 8 June 2020.
