Only 4 percent of psychologists in Aotearoa are Māori. But Māori are 50 per cent more likely to experience mental distress than tauiwi, or non-Māori.

This episode is about Hauora | Health, and the ways a kaupapa Māori view compares to the Western health system. We talk to clinical psychologist Dr Waikaremoana Waitoki about a Māori approach to mental health, and educator Heeni Hoterene about the Māramataka or Moon calendar and how it can impact our wellbeing.

This podcast was produced by Kayne Ngātokowha Peters and Anna Harcourt and edited by Richard Wills.
