Learning and development needs for the revised Guidelines to the Mental Health Act: Summary October 2021

The purpose of the surveys was to gather information from the district health board (DHB), non-government organisation (NGO) and primary health workforces to inform Te Pou and the Ministry of Health when developing new workforce initiatives related to the Act and the Guidelines. People provided feedback on:

  • current training related to the Mental Health Act and the Guidelines
  • what they want to see in future learning and development initiatives
  • resources for people and whānau


Te Pou has a wide range of evidence-based resources and tools to help the mental health, addiction and disability workforces.
