Our people

Collaborative leadership group

We are currently looking to establish a collaborative leadership group. The intent of this group is to provide strategic oversight, obtain funding, and expand the influence and impact of the collaborative. Our call for expressions of interest has now closed, and we are in the process of reviewing all applicants.

The backbone team

The Equally Well backbone team facilitates and supports regional, national, and international activity. It is made up of people from Te Pou, Platform and Ember. We engage and collaborate regularly to maintain overall strategic coherence, and coordinate and manage the day-to-day operations and implementation of work, including stakeholder engagement, communications, data collection and analysis, and other responsibilities.

Our partners

Equally Well Aotearoa is a collaborative of more than 100 organisations taking action to support physical health equity for people with mental health and addiction issues. The organisation sit across the health, mental health, addiction and social care sectors. You can find a full list of endorsing organisations here.

Alongside the organisations, we have a number of dedicated champions, or advocates, who come from a range of backgrounds. This includes lived experience, whānau, academic, policy, general practice, nursing, psychiatry, support work, public health, pharmacy, and cardiology backgrounds.

Keep an eye on this space as each month we will be spotlighting a different partner organisation or individual champion in the collaborative!
