The Government Inquiry into Mental Health and Addiction is hearing from a wide range of people across the country.

Panel members are meeting with individuals and groups including people with mental health and addiction challenges, their families and whānau, service providers, advocates, sector groups, organisations, institutions and experts.  

Local District Health Boards have helped us to arrange these meetings, but it is the Inquiry Panel that is deciding who it wants to meet with. The Government requires our report by October 2018, so we have limited time but we are determined to meet with as many people as we can. 

Meetings with stakeholder and community groups will continue in August as we wrap up our engagement programme. Our regional Meet the Inquiry Panel forums finished on 08 August 2018.
