The team comprises of both Maori and non-Maori staff, clinicians and cultural/community support workers who share a passion for supporting Maori on their recovery pathway.

Manawanui’s commitment to our clients ensures healing in a holistic manner taking into account whanau, cultural, spiritual, physical and mental dimensions in order to achieve the best possible standards of cultural-clinical care.
