Wellness | Oranga

Whānau have the ability to help one another to stay healthy (emotionally, physically and spiritually) which can be a key factor in avoiding or working through feelings of depression or suicidal thoughts.

When you are with whānau:

WHAKARONGO: 
Listen to them.  Let them know that you care and are there for them if they need someone to talk to.

MANAAKI 
Encourage a whānau member who is stressed to take a break and try to relax. Take time to create, meditate or exercise.

WHAKAMANA 
Focus on strengths and skills.  Encourage whānau to engage in activities they enjoy.

WHAKAWHANAUNGA 
Encourage whānau to get connected with friends or whanau. Encourage supportive relationships.

TUMANAKO 
Motivate whānau to set goals and follow their dreams.

HAUORA 
Promote healthy behaviours such as eating nutritious meals and exercising.

Te Pae Ora

Pae Ora provides a platform for Māori to live with good health and wellbeing in an environment that  supports a good quality of life.  Pae ora is holistic and includes three interconnected elements:

  1. Mauri Ora: Healthy individuals
  2. Whānau Ora: Healthy families
  3. Wai Ora: Healthy environments

Sir Mason Durie at the launch of He Korowai Oranga – Māori Health Strategy

In this lecture Sir Mason Durie considered the future developments of Māori health in a rapidly changing world where indigenous aspirations and strengthened Māori capability interact with technological innovation, demographic transitions and capability development. He concludes that Māori health will be a function of Māori determination and know-how and sees a growing role for whānau in increasing health.
