Embedding Cultural Practices

Congratulations to Dr Kahu McClintock Research Manager, Te Rau Matatini in being awarded $789,771 to test the use of indigenous approaches for helping at-risk Māori and Pacific youth. Funding comes from the Health Research Council of New Zealand (HRC) and the Ministry of Health, as part of New Zealand’s first Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases funding round. Dr McClintock’s Indigenous Solutions Research Programme will provide a suite of innovative, culturally-focused and community-based programmes to ensure young people are given access to culturally-responsive early intervention approaches to increase mental health resilience.
