Govt inquiry into Mental Health Addiction

Call for feedback from members.

The Government is calling for submissions on the Mental Health and Addictions Inquiry. There are a variety of ways in which you can have your say, including attending regional forums during May-June 2018
The Network will be making a submission specifically focussing on the challenges from a rural perspective and we are interested to hear your feedback on the following questions:

In the context of mental health and addictions in rural New Zealand communities:

  • What do you think is currently working well?
  • What isn’t working well at the moment?
  • What could be done better?
  • What sort of society would be best for the mental health of all our people?

Please consider this in the context of the patient, the whanau, the community and the rural primary care workforce.

Please send your feedback to by May 25, 2018.
