Kia Ora! As suggested, I am posting links to the NZ mental health plans here.

The health system here will soon be integrating (for all services and users) the Maori Model of Health. Basically, the holistic approach to health; a persons health is not based on one factor, it based upon the connections of four health areas in their life - mental health, physical health, spiritual health, and family health.

Thanks for the information, Sadakosdaisy.

 

It sounds like NZ is really trying to implement recovery and wellness principles and indigenous knowledge into their policies. That's awesome.
