He Tipuana Nga Kakano and Te Ao Whãnau are the longest standing regional stakeholder networks.  Over the last 10 years both networks have gone through different iterations to ensure that both groups remain current with the constantly changing mental health and addiction environment. 

Over the last two years both He Tipuana Nga Kakano and Te Ao Whãnau discussed the option of merging both stakeholder groups.  Combining both groups will allow for broader conversations to occur.  Specific consumer or whãnau items can take a focus group approach within the combined group and at a regional level as needed.  The Regional Network Team recognises the need for both groups to have time to process advice from their own perspective and will ensure that opportunities are created to allow this to happen.  The new name for this combined group is Nga Kopara o te Rito.
