Te Kokiri: The Mental Health and Addiction Action Plan 2006-2015 was released by the Government in August 2006. Te Kokiri was jointly developed by the Ministry of Health and District Health Boards and resulted from collaboration across the mental health and addiction sector.
The joint work programme establishes how the Ministry of Health and District Health Boards intend to work together, along with key sector stakeholders, in implementing Te Kokiri.
The overall purpose of the joint work programme is to:
- continue to build on the partnership and environment of shared decision-making between the Ministry and DHBs
- affirm a mandate for DHB leadership
- continue to substantively draw on stakeholder expertise and continue to build the external
- commitment to drive implementation
Te Kokiri has a large number of actions some of which are to be led by DHBs or the Ministry individually, and others that have been identified as being jointly led by the Ministry and DHBs. It is these joint actions that form the first three years joint work programme.
Joint projects will either occur through existing groups or new project teams will be established. Project groups will involve the usual consultation and wider mental health and addiction sector engagement, including with service users, family and whanau, clinicians and NGOs.
