Dr Diana and Mark Kopua: Maori mental health

From Saturday Morning, 10:40 am on 4 April 2020

What would mental health care look like if it took te ao Māori as its foundation?

Psychiatrist Dr Diana Kopua and her husband Mark - a tohunga and Tā Moko practitioner - have been on a mission to answer that very question.

They've developed Mahi a Atua, an approach which uses creation stories to connect with, and empower, those in distress ... and it's remarkably successful.
