Mahi is good for Everyone!
The Mana Taimahi programme recognises the positive effects of being employed. There is strong evidence that people in work are generally healthier and happier, with better long term social outcomes than those not in work.
Many people with health conditions want to keep working or go back to work sooner, but find it difficult to achieve. Mana Taimahi aims to identify what supports would help maintain employment, or a return to work.
