Tui Taurua-Peihopa

Tui has a legacy of forty years in mental health which has not lost its vision that more needs to be improved for Māori, it is this fire that ignites a passion that inspires Tui’s work to this day.  Tui developed “seek the mind of a warrior” to determine her own recovery and successes drawn on Te Ao Māori as a wahine Māori.  Tui says ’my work is dedicated to making a difference for Māori with lived Mental Health and Addiction experience. I look forward to continuing to go from strength to strength to achieve this aim.  Tui is the chair for Te Huarahi o te Kete Pounamu and is also a member on Nga Hau e Wha.
