He Ara Oranga: Report of the Government Mental Health and Addiction Inquiry
Following the release of He Ara Oranga: Report of the Government Mental Health and Addiction Inquiry on 4 December, the Inquiry panel is now ‘functus officio’, meaning their work has been completed and their Inquiry roles have concluded. The report is now in the hands of the Government to make decisions on the proposed directions and recommendations set out in the Inquiry report.
Inquiry panel received more than 5,200 reports and summaries and attended over 400 meetings. These summaries contribute to the story of the Inquiry by providing an authentic record of the voices the Panel heard, rather than specific recommendations.
Commissioned materials (Available on the website from 20 December) give an insight into other evidence that assisted the Panel in its deliberations. The comprehensive summaries of submissions will be of particular interest to academics, researchers, funders, people with lived experience, whānau and the wider community:
