Ka māhī tāhi tātou me te whānau me te hāpori whānui. He pai hauora me te waiora.

We work with families and the wider community so that health and wellbeing is achieved.

We work within the Principles of the Treaty of Waitangi (Partnership, Protection and Participation) to ensure Māori are involved in development, planning, and delivery of health care while safeguarding Māori culture concepts, values and practices.

We work using holistic hauora approach and embrace the four cornerstones of health:

  • Te taha tinana (physical wellbeing)
  • Te taha wairua (spiritual wellbeing)
  • Te taha hinengaro (mental wellbeing)
  • Te taha whānau (family wellbeing)

Our Logo

The image is of a woman Kāiamio, surrounding her head is the area; a space of thought and mental health.

Her arms depict two birds opposing one another and represent the comings and goings of people in this area.

The arms signify the nurturing and supportive concepts of whānau. In the centre of her whāre-tangata, there is a mountain, giving birth to life and good health.
