Acknowledgements :

The Mental Health Commission wishes to
thank the many people who contributed to
the Young Adult Project. Although we cannot name everyone individually we wish to convey our gratitude to all who contributed to this research journey.

Our heartfelt thanks go to the 40 young adults who generously and openly shared their stories with the research team. Your stories were a gift that we hope will provide many insights to those who read this report and strive to improve the quality of mental health services for young adults in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

The research design and processes were
strengthened by input from the young adult
advisory group of service users. In particular
we would like to thank Shona Clarke (Werry
Centre); Wellink peer support workers; Buddies Coordinator; EVOLVE peer support workers; Auckland Mental Health Foundation and VIBE members; and Mind and Body Consultants, Auckland.

Staff members from mental health services,
organisations and service user groups in
Auckland, Whakatane and Wellington
supported this research during the consultation process and facilitated access to young adult service users. We appreciate the time and energy they committed to this project. We would particularly like to thank Lois Boyd and Michael Hamilton who provided input throughout the research.

Dr Tess Moeke-Maxwell and Nancy Sheehan
were part of the project team and we would
like to thank them for their liaison with
Ma¯ori and Pacific mental health services and
communities, and their skill in undertaking
interviews with the Ma¯ori and Pacific young
adults. Hineroa Hakiaha, the Commission’s
Senior Ma¯ori Advisor, provided expertise,
advice and cultural input throughout the
design, development and implementation
of the research. Her involvement ensured
a culturally safe and appropriate research
process and endorsement from rural Ma¯ori
communities.

We wish also to thank the contractors who
undertook the difficult task of transcribing the research interviews and to Katja Hanke for providing research assistance.

Anne Else provided sound and constructive
editorial advice and review; and Shona Clarke provided external review of the draft report.

Students from the Bowerman School of Design and independent artists submitted cover designs for the project report. Our sincerest thanks to each of you for the time and energy you put into this work.

Commissioners, Commission reference groups, project staff and the wonderful administration team all provided input and facilitated the smooth running of this project. Special thanks to Sue Shotter, Iona Collins, Emma Jenkins and Lucy Wheeler.

During the course of this research one of the participants passed away. We wish to dedicate this research to her memory.
