About this Course

Orientation to the guideline for Supporting Parents Healthy Children.

Supporting Parents Healthy Children (SPHC) is a cross-workforce programme project led by Whāraurau.

The guideline sets out the essential and best practice elements of service design based on the evidence of what works to support both parents and their children. Engagement and utilisation of this will ensure that the wellbeing of children is everyone’s responsibility, not just infant, child and adolescent 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.

It is recommended that you complete the Te Pou E-module Working with Whānau before completing this short course.


The cross-workforce National Project Team of Whāraurau, Te Pou, Le Va, Te Rau Ora and Abacus, Manatū Hauora worked together to create this course. They would like to acknowledge the input of Dr Bronwyn Dunnachie, Andrew Raven, Emerging Minds, and the SPHC Coordinator Te Whatu Ora West Coast.
