Mana Ake - Stronger for Tomorrow

About

Mana Ake - Stronger for Tomorrow was established in March 2018 to promote wellbeing and positive mental health for children in school years 1-8 across Canterbury.  

The initiative aims to provide early intervention and support for teachers, families and whānau when children are experiencing ongoing issues that impact their wellbeing. Kaimahi can support individual children and groups of children and provide advice, guidance and support for teachers and parents/ whānau.  

The Mana Ake service is now available to children in several school clusters across Canterbury, including:  

  • Tamai
  • Uru Mānuka
  • Te Ara Tuhuru
  • Katote
  • Totaranui  
  • Ngā Mātāpuna o te Waihora 
  • Tipu Māia 
  • Christchurch City
  • Ōtākaro
  • Waimairi-iri 
  • Ngā Peka o Tauwharekākaho 
  • Te Mana Raupō 

Mana Ake Kaimahi are employed by 13 non-government organisations (NGOs) who make up the provider network. Kaimahi have a diverse range of skills and include psychologists, social workers, whānau ora kaimahi, counsellors and youth workers.
