Tāku Reo, Tāku Mauri Ora - My Voice, My Life is a tangata whaiora/service user self-assessed outcomes measure developed for tāngata whaiora/service users by tāngata whaiora/service users.
The development of the measure was led by Case Consulting. The measure and report are available for download in the right column and freely available for use.
The measure has 65 questions. They are divided among 11 domains associated with service user recovery.
There are a further 14 questions for Maori tāngata whaiora. The domains reflect areas that tāngata whaiora/service users across various cultures identified as important for recovery. Some examples are relationships, day-to-day life, physical health and culture.
It was designed for use by adults with experience of mental illness. It can be completed independently or with someone helping. Tāngata whaiora/service users can complete it on a number of occasions over time. This may assist personal reflection and recovery planning.
Some work has been done on reliability and validity in a convenience sample of service users. However, the tool has not yet been validated as an outcome measure. Tāku Reo, Tāku Mauri Ora requires further testing, to assess sensitivity to change and use in community settings.
