Maynard Gilgen

Project lead, Matua Raki

My role focuses on how to manaaki (support, empower) the addiction sector in working with Māori.

I am a registered clinical psychologist and have worked extensively with whānau in Corrections, Māori mental health, addictions and in developing iwi and Māori community responses towards violence. 

I lead projects that support the workforce to be responsive to Māori and develop Māori workforce leadership.

Kia ora te tangata, ka ora te whānau,
Kia ora te whānau, ka ora te tangata.
