Mental Health & Addictions Service

Description

Our Vision

Oranga Tangata, Oranga Whenua (Healthy Lives, Healthy Environments)

Hāpai aims to increase opportunities for the communities we serve to enjoy good health and to be sustained by healthy environments. We do this by providing a strategic focus that is underpinned by evidence-based research for the advancement of health and wellbeing for all. We work both regionally and nationally to address health inequities and provide strategic solutions for long term outcomes.

Our Place

Who do we service, and what is our capacity and reach

Regional Service Provision

The core of our Māori Public Health Leadership work is aimed at supporting localised health promotion through a number of key relationships and sub-contracted organisations. We do this by supporting them in public health policy development, health policy submissions and campaigns with our overall aim being that more and more Māori community settings and whānau are healthy in the long-term.

National Service Provision

Hāpai are charged with the coordination, workforce development and advocacy services across Gambling Harm Minimisation and Tobacco Control for all communities, being Māori, Pasifika, Asian and other population groupings, but with a focus on addressing the populations with the highest needs.

For Tobacco Control, our goal is to address the health issues and determinants of tobacco use. To achieve this goal we grow local, regional and national leadership, increase communication and enhance collaboration across the country. With our wide array of public health services and networks we activate collaborative cross-sector approaches that enable the addressing of multiple factors linked to tobacco use. All our initiatives are based on comprehensive evidence based strategies to support and maximise Government priorities policies and actions needed to deal with the health, social and economic harms linked to tobacco use.

For Gambling Harm Prevention, The National Co-ordination Service provides oversight and coordination to the Ministry of Health and its Gambling Harm Minimisation Infrastructure support services. This is a key position within the gambling harm network, that enables health leadership and direction across dedicated Māori, Asian, Pacific and other services. We are proud to offer this national service and to act as a conduit between Ministry of Health and its regional Gambling Harm Minimisation Services.

The National Public Health Workforce Development Service (Te Kākano) provides specialised Prevention and Minimisation of Gambling Harm Public Health training modules and connects the workforce with other related learning and education opportunities, as well as personalised workforce development plans with the aim to further strengthen and build leadership within the workforce. Our multiple pathways approach has an emphasis on removing barriers to training and being responsive to learning styles.

Hāpai is responsible for coordinating a national, integrated approach to SUDI prevention in Aotearoa. Our whakapapa as a Māori public health organisation over 20 years drives our philosophy which places health and
wellbeing of tamariki mokopuna and whānau at the center of everything we do.
