Te Ipu Whakahauā Database

A ready access database providing valuable research, literature, and conference papers relating to Māori mental health.

Te Ipu refers to a bowl that one can draw sustenance from or provide sustenance to.  Whakahauā refers to the wind that emerges to form the awhiowhio (whirlwind) which travels both ways, up and down.  The key is reciprocation between Papatūānuku and Ranginui.

The database follows the same way of thinking. Resources contained assist and inform those wanting more information about Māori mental health, the benefits will be returned, to contribute positively to whānau ora.  This database provides access to scientific literature with a simple and advance search facility.  

The database will continue to grow as a result of proactive sourcing of new material on the part of Te Kīwai Rangahau for Te Rau Matatini, who will also be responsible for the quality assurance of the database itself. For access go to Te Ipu Whakahauā.
