Through 2019, the Equally Well backbone team have been working to create a strategic leadership group. Several design meetings have led to the formation of an interim group to oversee and help steer the collaborative through 2020 and to agree the terms of reference for the group for 2021 onwards.
The interim group is formed by leaders who have lived experience of addiction and mental health issues. During 2020 the group will look to include more leaders from endorsing organisations who bring other perspectives to help strengthen this strategic leadership of our collaborative.
- Two new members were welcomed to join the backbone team, Reena Kaimanu from Te Pou o te Whakaaro Nui and Paulien Fa’atafa from Platform Trust.
- We co-ordinated a submission to feedback on the Ministry of Health’s cancer action plan, to strengthen the priority given to people who experience mental health and addiction issues.
