Wai Research to study Māori mental health

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.

Waitangi@Waititi 2017

More than 18,000 whānau came to Hoani Waititi Marae to enjoy Waitangi@Waititi 2017 – making this the biggest FREE community event celebrating Waitangi Day.

The day was made even more special by the attendance – and amazing powhiri – given the Prime Minister Bill English.

The sun, the sounds and the community spirit made this day unforgetable, and to help re-live those amazing moments, watch this six minute video of Waitangi@Waititi 2017.

On behalf of Whānau Waipareira, we thank you, the whānau, for coming and making this a day not to forget.
