Ngā Poutama Oranga Hinengaro 2019: a survey of mental health and addiction consumers, family & whānau experience

The Ngā Poutama consumer, family and whānau experience survey is about the experiences of care and support provided by district health board mental health or addiction (MHA) services.

The survey results will be used to monitor and improve the quality and safety of services and will complement the findings of our staff survey; Ngā Poutama 2018: survey of MHA staff.
