We are pleased to deliver He Ara Oranga – the report of the Government Inquiry into Mental Health and Addiction.
It has been an honour and privilege to undertake this Inquiry. We are grateful to all the people who shared their experiences and wisdom with us, in meetings and submissions.
We believe that the Inquiry process itself has been a catalyst for change.
We thank everyone who contributed to the Inquiry, particularly the members of the Inquiry Secretariat who have been so committed to our work and production of this report.
We know we carry the hopes of many people throughout Aotearoa, who believe in what this Inquiry can achieve. We are humbled by your encouragement and faith in us.
We hand our report to the Government, trusting that the ‘once in a generation’ opportunity of the Inquiry will be seized.
Wellington, November 2018
