This service been specifically developed and is delivered by a provider who identifies as Māori.
This service uses a Māori framework and model of care that encompasses a holistic approach to health, and is cognisant of the requirements of Māori.
Common elements of Māori models include:
- Taha tinana
- Taha whānau
- Taha hinengaro
- Taha wairua
- Te Reo Māori
- Tikanga Māori
Underpinning these elements are the concepts of mana, tapu and mauri. The service is responsive to those people with more complex needs and co-existing problems and ensures relationships with other organisations and referral pathways are in place, to support good access.
