Kā Pou Whenua

Purapura Whetu Trust is one of the largest community based kaupapa Māori mental health services in Ōtautahi, offering a wide range of supports to Māori and non-Māori. Purapura Whetu has teamed up with Poutini Waiora, community based kaupapa Māori mental health services in the West Coast, and together are delivering on the Māori workstream which was named the Kā Pou Whenua project.


Ka Pou Whenua, Kia Piki Te Ora, and Poutini Waiora had the privilege of hosting and witnessing a heartwarming journey, where our West Coast community took time out of their day to invest in their hauora (wellbeing) and tuakiri (identity)

A day to showcase the importance of collective action and investment in our mental health and the first step of many into a healthier future for all.
