Changem has recently produced a discussion paper for Manatū Hauora Ministry of Health titled He Arotake ngā Tūraru - Reviewing Risk. 

This discussion paper is part of the response to recommendation 35 in He Ara Oranga - the report of the Government Inquiry into Mental Health and Addiction. 

Recommendation 35 said "encourage mental health advocacy groups and sector leaders, people with lived experience, families and whānau, professional colleges, DHB chief executive officers, coroners, the Health and Disability Commissioner, New Zealand Police and the Health Quality and Safety Commission to engage in a national conversation to reconsider beliefs, evidence and attitudes about mental health and risk". 

We've included the paper below, and you can also access it by clicking here. 

We'd love to hear your thoughts and questions. Join the conversation on risk by contacting us.
