29 Jun 2018

Te Kaveinga presents results from the New Zealand Mental Health Monitor and the Health and Lifestyles Survey related to the mental health and wellbeing of Pacific peoples. Overall, the findings show that Pacific peoples report high levels of wellbeing and family wellbeing, and are well connected socially and culturally. The findings also tell us that Pacific adults experience psychological distress at higher levels than non-Pacific adults. This report also examines diversity in the Pacific population, and presents findings that indicate differences in mental health outcomes for some multi-ethnic Pacific people, and in cultural connectedness for some Pacific subgroups.
