A whole new approach to mental health and addiction?

Boosting access to services, reforming mental health and drug legislation, focusing on suicide prevention, and re-establishing a Mental Health and Wellbeing Commission are among the 40 recommendations in the much-anticipated Mental Health and Addictions Inquiry report released yesterday.

Watch an animated summary of the 200-page report below.


The executive summary and recommendations of the report have been published in several formats including an audio (MP3),  large text and te reo Māori. A lending copy of these documents in Braille is available on request.

Further versions will be made available in coming weeks, including a Samoan translation of the executive summary and recommendations, te reo Māori animation and an easy read version.
