Primary Health Organisations: 57 Service development toolkit for mental health services in primary health care Appendix 2: Strategic Policies and Documents In this appendix, we summarise strategies relevant to the provision of primary mental health services in a New Zealand context. New Zealand Health Strategy The New Zealand Health Strategy identifies priority areas for health and aims to ensure that health services are directed at those areas where greatest benefit will be realised. Specifically, the strategy aims to ensure accessible and appropriate services for Mäori and Pacific peoples and those from lower socioeconomic groups. This includes improving the health status of people with severe mental illness. The strategy has a number of principles, with the central one being the special relationship between Mäori and the Crown under the Treaty of Waitangi. New Zealand Disability Strategy The strategy is about disabled people having full and rich lives with: a sense of inclusion full participation in society full opportunity in their lives. He Korowai Oranga – Mäori Health Strategy The overall aim of He Korowai Oranga is whänau ora: supporting Mäori families to achieve their maximum health and wellbeing. Whänau is recognised as the foundation of Mäori society. It is the source of strength, support, security and identity and plays a central role in Mäori wellbeing, both individually and collectively. Whänau recognises the wide diversity of families represented in Mäori communities. He Korowai Oranga challenges the health and disability sector to recognise: the interdependency of people that health and wellbeing are influenced and affected by the ‘collective’ as well as by the individual the importance of working with people in a social context, not just by addressing their physical symptoms.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
