Kiri Waititi was a clinical psychiatrist for 6 years and devoted a lot of her time to studying mental health but always felt torn between her identity as Māori and what she was doing. However through further studies she found a body of research that informed her that not only 80% of therapeutic success is within people themselves but that a further 95% is within being Māori and only 5% comes down to models. This shifted her focus from model basis to being Māori and what is inherit within whakapapa to support our people.
This was a very informative and insight kōrero that can contribute to better understanding and further supporting whanau and even ourselves with our mental health.
