Update from Ōtepoti

Te Kete Pounamu ki Ōtepoti

An initiative to beautify (preferably something no one else has done) the entranceway to Wakari Psychiatric Hospital Wards will be on the agenda for discussion at our upcoming steering committee hui in July

First impressions for tangata whaiora Māori and ALL new arrivals to the mental health system at the hospital, should be one of healing and recovery from mental distress. Maybe an onsite marae could be part of the answer.

TOTT have kindly offered Te Kete Pounamu their office and marae space, to utilise once a month for our steering rōpū members to meet.

1. Te Oranga Tonutanga Māori Mental Health
2. Entrance to Ward 11 and Ward 10C
3. Entrance to Ward 9C
4. The 9B and 9A units entranceway
