The panel wants to know about our current mental health services and identify what is working well, what isn't, where the gaps are, and what the potential solutions might be. You can meet with them on Tuesday 22 May at 5pm, Copthorne Solway Park, Masterton.

Panel members are keen to hear from interested parties and other groups and individuals who want to share their thoughts and ideas for improvements.

There is no need to register for these meetings.

From the Inquiry Team....

Our purpose is to identify unmet needs related to mental health and addiction, and develop recommendations for a cohesive mental health and addiction approach for Aotearoa, New Zealand.

We are committed to making recommendations that are pragmatic and implementable, with a focus on short and long-term solutions at the national and local level.

We want to build on the good work that is already being done, while looking to system-level change that will improve both promotion of good mental health and support for people with mental health challenges and/or addictions.

In short, we want to generate hope and set a clear direction for the next five to ten years that Government, the mental health and addiction sectors, and the broader community can pick up and implement – to make real, positive change.
