He Ara Oranga draft framework

The Initial Mental Health and Wellbeing Commission (the ‘Initial Commission’) was established in November 2019 to maintain the momentum of He Ara Oranga, the Government Inquiry into Mental Health and Addiction in Aotearoa while a permanent Commission is established as an independent Crown entity.  Visit the Initial Commission’s website for more information about the role of the Initial Commission.
When established in February 2021, the Commission will oversee the performance of the whole mental health and wellbeing system, provide leadership and support, and challenge it to perform better.

He Ara Oranga wellbeing outcomes framework (attached)
The Initial Commission has been tasked to develop a wellbeing outcomes framework, with relevance to mental health and addiction. The framework is called the 'He Ara Oranga wellbeing outcomes framework' to reflect the pathway to wellness and our role in ensuring the legacy of He Ara Oranga continues.
The purpose of this outcomes framework is to support the mental health and wellbeing system to understand, measure and inform improved outcomes for Aotearoa, at both population (everyone in Aotearoa) and service levels (people and whānau who use mental health and addiction services).
This framework is in development. We are currently focused on the concepts to include in the outcomes framework. Later in the year, we will start the 'data phase' to work through the indicators, measures, data sources and data gaps.

Seeking your views
We are now testing the draft outcomes framework. We are asking for your views on:

  • Six areas of wellbeing
  • Vision statement
  • Our principles
