The Mental Health and Addictions inquiry

Kia ora koutou

The Mental Health and Addictions inquiry is an important kaupapa and submissions are open until 5pm on 5 June 2018. The Inquiry panel will be giving their recommendations to the government by 30 October and these recommendations will shape the mental health and addictions sector for the next 5-10 years.

 You may work with people in this space or have personal experience (yourself or someone you know) and have had whakaaro about what the government could do better, what’s working well and what isn’t working so well. The Mental Health and Addictions Inquiry is the opportunity to have your voice heard and share what you think should change and what you think should stay the same. Sharing your story can be therapeutic and empowering and CAYAD would love to support you or your organisation to do so.

Would you and your organisation be interested in attending a CAYAD Auckland led workshop and learn about the inquiry where we will tautoko you to complete a submission form on the day?

CAYAD would provide the space and kai and our whole team will be there to work on a submission with you, provide information and support.

For more information please visit:

 or feel free to ask any patai and if you would be interested in coming along to a workshop in the next couple of weeks please let us know.
