Able Minds holds the Supporting Parents Healthy Children contract which is the primary link between Te Whatu Ora and community. With a focus on achieving better health outcomes for children, parents and family as a whole. This comes from a family /whānau centred health viewpoint and is about analysing trends in the community and feeding this back into the system so that it evolves and produces equitable outcomes.
This initiative works to strengthen family- and whānau-centred best practice at the personal, service practice and organisational levels. This includes identifying and supporting the workforce’s professional development to recognise and respond to the needs of the children and their family or whānau.
