Over the next few months, Te Rau Matatini will be holding consultation hui across Aotearoa with whānau who have lived experience of caring for loved ones with mental illness. We are seeking information from these whānau on what are the motivators, challenges and barriers for them to care for their loved ones. These whānau are our silent workforce; we aim to give these whānau a voice on what works for them and what their aspirations are. Hui will be held in Kaitaia (12th & 13th of September), Taupo (20th September), Christchurch (25th of September) and Palmerston North (31st of October). If you have whānau with lived experience of caring for loved ones with mental illness who would like to share their whakaaro at one of these hui, please call 0800MATATINI or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
