Ki te kotahi te kakaho ka whati, Ki te kapuia e kore e whati
Alone we can be broken. Standing together, we are invincible.
As anticipated, July did not disappoint with more than 90 people from across Aotearoa joining via Zoom for the Child and Youth and Adult stream KPI Programme forums.
The new mental health and addiction services Wait times indicator is now live on the KPI Programme website.

A problem is solved by continuing to find solutions.
As the weather gets colder, events across the mental health and addiction sector will warm your heart and provide connections and learnings that inspire continual positive action.
“Dialogue starts from the courageous willingness to know and be known by others. It is the painstaking and persistent effort to remove all obstacles that obscure our common humanity.”
On 21 April 2021, Minister of Health Andrew Little announced a plan to significantly shift the operating structure of our health system. As with Governments before him, Minister Little set a direction for the health sector which he believes will reformat how we deliver services to meet the needs of a contemporary Aotearoa.
A labour of love for the past eight months, the KPI Programme team were excited to push the button and make the new website live on 15 March.
“The objective is not to be a leader or a follower, but a guide. A good guide doesn’t stop at helping people change their beliefs or behaviours. Our work isn’t done until we’ve helped them accomplish their goals.” – Adam Grant, Think Again
Excitement is building as we round the corner to our November 2020 KPI Programme forums next week. It’s been a full couple of months with the Programme stream leads and Programme team meeting fortnightly to plan data-rich sessions dedicated to leveraging our KPIs to share learning insights and inspire action.
“I knew data would be important for generating insights and measuring progress, but I didn’t anticipate it would be centrepiece of many upstream efforts.” – Dan Heath, Upstream
Continuous improvement is one of the cornerstones of the KPI Programme. It is the practice of continuously re-examining and improving the way we deliver mental health and addiction services across Aotearoa to achieve better outcomes for tāngata whai ora, whānau and communities.
