Te Piringa Tupono Problem Gambling Services

Te Piringa Tupono Problem Gambling Services

Embark on a transformative journey with Te Piringa Tupono, a dedicated pathway to holistic wellness. Our unwavering commitment is to empower positive change within whanau and community through specialized services designed to minimize gambling harm.

Our Program Model, Te Toi O Matariki, is akin to an "awakening" model. It operates on the principle that true change begins by understanding oneself as an individual, embracing one's identity as Maori, and connecting with their cultural value base. This model realigns the ownership of our behaviors with the traditional Maori philosophy of wellness, emphasizing the crucial role of role modeling.

All our programs are thoughtfully structured into modules, ensuring a comprehensive and effective approach to fostering positive change.
