In response to the hugely positive feedback from our Mahi a Atua webinar, we now welcome Riana Manuel, Manukura Hauora (CEO), and Taima Campbell, Poukura Hauora (Clinical Services Manager), from Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki, who, earlier in 2020, launched Te Kūwatawata ki Hauraki – an immediate response service for whānau suffering mental distress.
The service uses an indigenous-style, feedback-informed, holistic Māori approach to ensure those in mental distress receive support and treatment as and when they need it. Māori service design and the Mahi a Atua framework are used to drive systemic changes to ways of working with those requiring help.
This presentation from Riana Manuel and Taima Campbell will share how the implementation is making a difference for their staff, whānau, community and services.
We are excited to present this follow up of our April webinar: ‘Mahi A Atua – A treatment for racism’ with Dr Diana Kopua, an independent psychiatrist and former head of psychiatry at Gisborne DHB, alongside her husband, tohunga and Tā Moko practitioner Mark Kopua of Te Whare Wānanga o Te Kurahuna. You may wish to view the recording of the Mahi a Atua presentation prior to watching this webinar.
