Lotofale exists to provide cultural and clinical support expertise to Pacific clients and their families who enter mental health services at Auckland District Health Board.
Pacific cultures currently represented within Lotofale include Samoan, Tongan, Niuean and Cook Island. Our philosophies are based on courtesy and respect, core of the heart and the process of healing. Mental Health is not seen in isolation, but holistic - family, cultural, spiritual, physical, mental and other dimensions should be in balance for Pacific people to be healthy.
Our commitment is to promote a service that puts consumers and their families as the central focus
