Pae Tata Pae Tawhiti

Pae Tata Pae Tawhiti is a brief and early intervention framework intended as a guide for practitioners who work in a range of settings from Whanau Ora, primary health, and health and social services. It’s particularly helpful for practitioners who want to learn how to work with those who come to you for alcohol and other drug concerns, and mild to moderate mental health concerns.

This can involve practitioners from a range of professions and organisations within the primary health sector including (but not limited to): Whanau Ora navigators; Drug and Alcohol Practitioners; Health Improvement Practitioners (HIPS); Health coaches; Awhi Ora support workers; Community Health Workers; Nurses; midwives and social workers.

Whare Tukutuku has dedicated trainers from within the Mental Health and Addictions sectors to deliver Pae Tata Pae Tawhiti in a way that meets the specific needs or focus of services (Mental health and/or addictions).

Te Rau Ora has dedicated trainers from within the Mental Health and Addictions sectors to deliver Pae Tata Pae Tawhiti in a way that meets the specific needs or focus of services (Mental health and/or addictions). Ahakoa, our focus is on mauri ora in both contexts.
