Te Puāwaiwhero: The Second Māori Mental Health and Addiction National Strategic Framework 2008-2005

by the Ministry of Health


This second Māori Mental Health National Strategic Framework (Te Puāwaiwhero) uses Te Puāwaitanga as a platform to build on the significant gains that have been achieved for oranga hinengaro (Māori mental health and wellbeing). It extends the scope in line with current government directions for oranga hinengaro, and provides the sector with guidance on the inter-dependence of this approach with whānau ora. Te Puāwaiwhero is a resource that will be used to inform those implementing the actions in Te Kōkiri: The Mental Health and Addiction Action Plan 2006–2015. The framework has also been developed as a tool for Māori communities working with their partners in health.
