Hoki atu ki ō maunga, kia purea koe e ngā hau a Tāwhiri-mātea
Return to your mountains, that you may be cleansed by the winds of Tāwhiri-mātea

Te Oranga Hinengaro presents results from the New Zealand Mental Health Monitor and the Health and Lifestyles Survey related to the mental health and wellbeing of Māori in New Zealand. In particular, this report provides insight into the relationship between multiple measures of mental health and Māori experiences of wellbeing: Whanaungatanga and belonging, cultural connectedness and reconnection, and strength of cultural identity. A key aspect of Te Oranga Hinengaro is the focus on within-Māori differences in mental health and wellbeing.
