Teina stream encourages mental health innovation

Associate Health Minister Peeni Henare says a new funding round for kaupapa Māori primary mental health and addiction services will encourage innovation.

It comes out of a hui where people told him the existing systems lack a Māori focus.

For the first time providers will be able to make applications in te reo Māori, and some of the bureaucratic impediments that shut many smaller providers out of past rounds have been removed.

There are two funding streams - a tūākana stream for the large established Māori providers and a teina or incubator stream for kaupapa Māori programmes that might not fit the usual funding focus.

"And they could be things like purea wairua, so that's the taha wairua where we go back to our marae where karakia sessions are had in order to support people in their Māori mental well being. What we are looking for in the teina stream are kaupapa Māori things that aren't your normal ones that we see through Māori heath providers but those ones like mirimiri, purea wairua, things that just change it up for our people," Mr Henare says.

Registrations of interest in the New Kaupapa Māori Primary Mental Health & Addiction Services tender need to be in by August 10.
