Ranga Hauora service at Burwood Hospital / Te Whare Toa Takitini recognises the significance of ensuring patients/tangata whaiora feel at ease when receiving care. The service identifies cultural issues when working with whānau, hapū and iwi and enables staff to access the support and resources available to meet their cultural needs.

The philosophy of the Māori Mental Health Service is Whanaungatanga – a concept that stresses the importance of family and that nothing is done in isolation but as part of a member of a whanau. Māori mental health workers make up a multidisciplinary clinical team that works hard to improve the delivery and quality of health services to tangata whaiora / Māori consumers of mental health services.
