Researchers at the University of Auckland are looking at how an online mental health support toolkit can better serve Māori.

The project is being funded by telecommunications company Chorus, as part of the company’s goal of creating greater digital capability.

Senior clinical research fellow Dr Amy Chan says the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in increasing rates of distress.

The project will evaluate whether an online solution such as Clearhead is an acceptable and effective way of providing mental health support.

Clearhead co-founder and chief executive Dr Angela Lim says Māori face a disproportionately higher rate of mental health distress but are less likely to seek help.

Clearhead aims to change this by providing an alternative pathway to seek mental wellbeing support.

The platform includes an artificial intelligence wellbeing assistant, which helps users better understand their mental health status by conducting a simple mental health assessment.
