Supporting Parents Healthy Children (SPHC) is an across-workforce programme project led by Whāraurau.
The across-workforce national project team (Whāraurau, Matua Raki, Te Pou, Le Va, Te Rau Ora and Abacus) in partnership with the Ministry of Health are working together to support services to implement the national SPHC Guideline.
This section of the website provides a range of information and resources to support health workforce managers and clinicians to implement the SPHC Guideline:
Parents want the best for their children and this Guideline provides all mental health and addiction services, adult, infant, child and youth services alike, with the mandate to work in a family-focused way to help parents achieve this. This will ensure that the wellbeing of children is everyone’s responsibility, not just infant, child and youth services. The Guideline outlines essential and best practice elements of family and whānau focused practices that all mental health and addictions services are expected to be actively working towards.
