Whāraurau: Empower the Workforce  |  Manaaki Mokopuna

Whāraurau is a national workforce centre for Infant, Child and Adolescent Mental Health at the University of Auckland which opened in Poutū te Rangi (March) 2003 (see About Us).

We are based at the University of Auckland (Dept. of Psychological Medicine) City campus, and we also have satellite offices in Wellington and Christchurch.

Whāraurau provides national training and workforce development within the infant, child and adolescent mental health (ICAMH) sector.

We are funded by the government to deliver workforce development initiatives – through Auckland UniServices Ltd – to grow the capacity and capability of the infant, child and adolescent mental health and addictions workforce. See more…

Whāraurau aims to improve the mental health of New Zealand young people by:

  • providing training of a high quality to mental health professionals,
  • promoting research in child and adolescent mental health,
  • advocating for mental health needs of children and adolescents in New Zealand,
  • supporting the child and adolescent mental health workforce nationally.

The centre is involved in the development and promotion of evidence-based approaches to healthcare as well as supporting clinical staff and services working with infants, child and adolescents throughout New Zealand. Staff at Whāraurau have expertise in many areas of infant, child and adolescent mental health.
