This Registration of Interest (ROI) is seeking new and innovative Kaupapa Māori Primary Mental Health and Addiction services in Te Moana-a-Toi / Bay of Plenty.

The intended services, once implemented, will provide immediate support to address the needs of Māori experiencing mild to moderate distress.

This Tuakana (Established) Stream ROI is open to suitably qualified Māori Respondents including NGOs, PHOs, companies and other legal entities who will have previous or existing delivery experience within the Mental Health and Addiction or other social services field. The Tuakana Stream is best suited for established Māori providers with well-developed infrastructure and services.

Note: for people familiar with the earlier Kaupapa Māori ROI it is important to note that there is no second Tēina (‘Incubator’) Stream with this ROI. This is because the previous ROI’s Tēina Stream was open to all geographical areas within Aotearoa/New Zealand and this latest ROI is focused on identifying an experienced service-provider for the Te Moana-a-Toi / Bay of Plenty Region.

For the purposes of this ROI “primary mental health and addiction services” are services that offer a comprehensive range of supports including evidence informed therapy and treatment services as well as peer support, cultural support, self-management support and access to a range of social supports. These services are first point of contact services for people experiencing mild to moderate distress who are not eligible for secondary services. They can be delivered from a range of settings in the community. Please note, while the settings may include GP clinics, this is not a requirement of the Kawa (ROI) – we have used the term “primary” in its broadest sense.

This ROI can be responded to in one of two ways:
1. Orally - In a video – recorded on your phone
2. Written - via completing the applicable Response Form

We would welcome submissions in English or in Te Reo or a mixture of both.

A prospective provider briefing will be held at: Wednesday 16 December 2020 at 4pm
