The biggest challenges are homelessness, jobs, ‘‘P’’, sexual and family violence and health. We recently launched a Maori housing policy which acknowledges that home is where the heart is. And without a warm, safe, dry place, life is simply harder. Labour’s vision is that Maori enjoy an equal playing field and have the same home ownership opportunities as non-Maori. Another big challenge facing families in the Far North is mental health. Labour’s promise of a pilot scheme of specialist mental health teams across the country is much needed in the north. This will help 40,000 people a year at a cost of $43 million. Also we are going to help students by providing school teams with mental health specialists. Labour is dedicated to raising rangatahi achievement so we create strong healthy future generations. Labour will address the rapid deterioration of New Zealand’s mental health system and address the rising suicide statistics which have had a devastating impact on our people in the North. Sexual and family violence are key drivers of mental health problems, drug and alcohol abuse and youth suicide. I have campaigned to raise awareness around these issues and in the last three years have walked the equivalent of 20 marathons for the cause. We will start a review of mental health in our first 100 days. Labour will also introduce three free years of post-secondary education for the Far North.
