Introduction to sector engagement and leadership

Sector engagement and supporting leadership

By working with you to understand your needs and others that work in the sector Whāraurau can can develop and deliver an informed programme of work to support sector leaders and drive leadership development.

The aim is to continuously drive the development capabilities of the ICAYMH/AOD workforce and improve service delivery for young people and their whānau.

We achieve this through: 

  • Regional engagement - attending conferences and facilitating local, regional and national meetings
  • Convening advisory groups
  • Cultural improvement activities with our cultural advisory team
  • Youth engagement and leadership

Sector leaders' days

If you are a clinical leader or service manager in the infant, child and youth mental health and addictions sector, these regular 'sector days' provide opportunities for you to share innovative practice and service development ideas and foster networking and leadership support.

The days are open to sector partners such as Education, Oranga Tamariki, Youth Justice, Te Hiringa Mahara (Health and Wellbeing Commission) and Mana Mokopuna (Children and Young People’s Commission) and other child and youth serving agencies.

These days are also an opportunity for the Manatū Hauora and Te Whatu Ora and other key agencies to disseminate information and elicit feedback

Youth engagement and leadership

If you have employed or are looking to employ a young consumer/peer advisor who has lived experience of the mental health system, our own Youth Advisory team are here to support both you and them.

Using their own lived experience they can offer guidance on working with a youth consumer/peer advisor and can offer that person support in their mahi.

The team currently work with a network of youth consumer advisors and the aim is to ensure the needs of young people are met as they seek help for mental health, alcohol and other addiction issues.

By co-designing support structures with young people the aim is for their voice to be heard around what works for them in terms of how services are delivered. Ultimately the goal is to find a better path of recovery and have improved outcomes.
