Who We Are
Te Kotuku Ki Te Rangi is a Charitable Trust established in 2001 to provide support and care for Maori and Non-Maori who experience mental health disabilities. We aim to achieve the successful healing and recovery of Tangata Whaiora (Tangata Whaiora is a person who is the subject of care, assessment and treatment processes in mental health- a person seeking health) through the provision of a range of high quality support and care services.
To provide a range of quality services which support recovery and well-being.
Through the acknowledgement of tupuna and the implementation of Maori frameworks of service delivery, Te Kotuku Ki Te Rangi will be a leader in the provision of high quality and innovative services. Through united strength, vision and concerted commitment to well-being and development, Tangata Whaiora can realise their dreams and aspirations.
The philosophy of Te Kotuku Ki Te Rangi towards health is based on a holistic health framework, Te Whare Tapa Wha, which represents four approaches to life and wellbeing:
Te Taha Whanau (family)
Te Taha Wairua (spirituality)
Te Taha Hinengaro (mind)
Te Taha Tinana (physical)
