Ngati Porou psychiatrist Dr Diana Kopua gives us an insight into her work developing Mahi a Atua, a Māori approach to mental well-being which draws on the stories, narratives and healing practices of te ao Māori. This approach encourages practitioners to actively engage in Māori interventions that draw from the Māori creation and storytelling known as pūrākau to understand how tipuna understood and made sense of their realities. Join Dr Kopua to learn about Mahi a Atua and the importance of language and narratives in how we understand our world and improve our being, our whānau and our communities.
