Awhi Ora – Supporting Wellbeing Team 

The Awhi Ora – Supporting Wellbeing Team (Previously known as The Tamaki Mental Health and Wellbeing initiative) was launched in 2013 to help create a new experience of mental health and wellbeing support in Tamaki. This was being achieved through working together with the local community, social agencies, local providers, NGO’s and GP practices. 

Awhi Ora is a part of our Community Support Services Central, a specialist service within Framework. It is committed to providing support to clients, by helping to find resources in their community to be able to live their lives to the fullest. This includes working with the client along side of family/whanau, Community Mental Health Centre's and General Practitioners if needed.

The service is for people who are currently experiencing personal/ practical challenges and are finding it difficult to perform day to day tasks or to reach their desired goals. 

The service promotes self management and independence for clients with supports such as accommodation, transport, employment, personal and interpersonal skills, budgeting, education, WINZ advocacy and self-care; so that it will enable them to live well in the community of their choice.  Our clients live in Central Auckland.

The Occupational Therapist/ Social Worker and Support Workers have a wide range of specialised skills applicable to their respective qualification, which include communication skills, assessments, planning and implementation, as well as a good knowledge of mental health and well-being. The employees act as a positive role model throughout the process.
