A SummerEnd of Summer Issue 4 - March 2018

Kia ora, Kia orana, Talofa & Hello

Welcome to our end of summer Midland Mental Health & Addiction e-Newsletter.

It has been a busy beginning of 2018 with hot, humid and stormy weather.  We celebrate all the success that we have achieved across the region so far.

Values are a large part of what drives an organisation and the values are reflected by us, the staff.  As a region, each of our DHBs have developed values that reflect the communities that they serve, check out their websites for more information.
