Emma Kutia of Kia Piki te Ora thinks that family need to be more involved with relatives that have a mental disorder and she sees this as a huge concern when it comes to support after many meetings so far this week as we celebrate Mental Health Week.

Nā te iti o te wā, kāre e tuhono ai ngā whānau I ēnei rā. Koira tā Emma Kutia, kaimahi mo Kia Piki te Ora. Ko te matu o te kaupapa tuhonohono, kia hoki ano ngā whānau ki te kōrero tahi, te noho tahi, te tūhono tahi. Heoi, hei tā Emma Kutia, kua kore te āhua o te tūhonohono ki wāenga I ngā whānau, koia nei e raru ait e hunga mate hinengaro.
