Research Agendas for New Zealand: Asian and Refugee and Migrant 

Te Pou is New Zealand’s National Centre of Mental Health Research, Information and Workforce Development. Te Kokiri: The Mental Health and Addiction Plan 2006-2015 identified the need to develop research agendas about mental health and addiction in specific population groups. These research agendas fit within the goal of enhancing service responsiveness to specific population groups. They aim to facilitate the development of knowledge about how best to provide services to meet the mental health and addiction needs of these groups.

Te Pou was commissioned by the New Zealand Ministry of Health to develop two national research agendas one identifying targets or priorities for mental health and addiction research for New Zealand’s Asian population, the other identifying priorities for refugee and migrant populations.

Based on consultation with a wide range of stakeholders and a review of what research already exists Te Pou has completed four documents, two of which are summary documents:

  • Quality of Life Report
    Mental illness can be a devastating illness for anyone; however, it is especially difficult for young adults as it often disrupts their education, career plans and the raising of a young family.  The symptoms of psychosis can confuse the mind, disorient perceptions, and unsettle important relationships with family and friends.  But there is hope, schizophrenia and psychosis are treatable and recovery of quality of life is possible when people are able to find the right path to open up options for treatment, support and hope. 

    The Schizophrenia Society of Canada (SCC) recently commissioned a Canada-wide survey to learn how it can support people living with schizophrenia and their families to recover the best quality of life possible.  Through a qualitative and quantitative survey and cross Canada focus groups, 1,086 people with mental health experience shared what quality of life means to them.  The results revealed that people living with schizophrenia and their families share similar hopes and frustrations regarding their quality of life.  (Details)

  • In order to further research the interrelationship among disability income support programs, CWGHR has undertaken a project called “Navigating the Maze”. Through exploring mechanisms to promote improved communication and integration among the various programs that people with disabilities must navigate, the long-term overall goal of this project is to promote opportunities for optimal labour force participation.   (PDF Format)
