We have professionally and culturally competent staff who visit homes, marae, workplaces or wherever people feel comfortable. They are a complementary mix of nurses and doctors, health educators and promoters, social and youth workers and other allied health workers, as well as business, ICT, marketing, administration and HR staff.

In many of our services kaiāwhina walk alongside clients and their whānau, offering practical support and education, co-ordinating transport, supporting clients at appointments and finding out about related services. Kaumātua and kuia help address cultural aspects of mental unwellness as well as advocating for tangata whai ora.
