Wai Research – the research arm of Whānau Waipareira – will carry out a 12-month project that could refocus services for Māori mental health.
The Ngā Kanohi Kitea grant from the New Zealand Health Research Council will allow Wai Research to explore the mental health needs of the West Auckland Māori community. Those needs can be easily replicated throughout the country.
‘HeKimihia te Hauora Hinengaro’ will build on what is already known about kaupapa Māori models of mental health service delivery. This will be supported by Wai Research’s ‘Kaupapa Māori Models of Psychological Therapy & Mental Health Services’ literature review which was published in 2016, as well as engaging with the West Auckland community around their mental health needs and current service provision.
