Hinengaro | Mind

How we think has a massive influence on how we feel and live. But stats show that almost half of us (47%) will experience mental distress or illness – with the odds being even higher for Māori, tāngata whaikaha (people living with disability), the Rainbow community, and young people. But we can help. Tui Ora has hauora specialists and kaiārahi (many with lived experience) to support whānau living with mental illness, wanting to overcome addiction or experiencing mental distress.

Give us a call on 0800 TUI ORA or just drop into Te Whaitua Whānau — no appointment necessary.

Mental Wellbeing

Mental wellness is critical to our happiness and hauora – yet most of us will experience some kind of mental or social distress during our lives. Our kaiārahi kōrero with you to understand what’s going on in your world. We can support you to develop and nurture healthy wellbeing habits and sort out many common things that causse stress and distress. We’re here for all, regardless of age or stage, but have a number of programmes that support the mental wellbeing of specific groups.

Hauora Hacks

Waiting time doesn’t need to be wasted time. When you’re on hold, in a queue or waiting anywhere, focus on mindful breathing. Breath in for 4, hold for 4, out for 4, hold for 4 and repeat — it calms your nervous system right down!
