It was great to see the conversations and to hear the range of views at our prototyping workshop on 11 May. We were exploring ways that we might connect health and community services in Tamaki to develop a holistic and person-centred approach to wellbeing and mental health support. The diversity of perspectives led to some stimulating ideation and creative solutions.
Over a hundred ideas were generated during the initial brainstorming session, which we have now themed and will provide a foundation for prototyping ways of improving connections.
The five themes are:
Ways that funding might change the way we work
Pathways and navigation to create one system
Holistic care and collaboration between services and community
Increasing the capacity of primary health to support people with mental health and addiction needs
Person determined care and health promotion
A big thank you to all who attended the workshop and particular thanks to Mount Wellington Community Church for allowing us to use their community space to run the session.
