This self-help wellbeing app is for Māori individuals and whānau to know what to do if they are concerned about someone’s mental or emotional wellbeing.
“He kokonga whare e kite, He kokonga ngākau e kore e kite.”
“The corners of a house can be seen, however we cannot see the depths of the heart.” It is hard to know what someone else is thinking or going through mentally and emotionally. Some of us find it difficult to move through our own emotions when things are hard. This Manaaki Ora app is designed to provide guidance and tips on how to self-help, or how to support others who might be going through hard times or distress.

Helping whānau identify their feelings and when they are starting to feel overwhelmed.
