The MHF wrote to the Minister of Health and Minister of Police recommending alternative approaches to community mental and suicidal crisis across Aotearoa to replace police responding to these situations alone. We believe Health NZ/Hauora Aotearoa and the Māori Health Authority are well placed to support the localities to create community-led responses crises which suit their specific needs. These responses should be community based, peer-led and co-designed by tāngata whaiora and tāngata Māori.
