“the Society’s work to establish a mental health clinic within a primary care centre is a great opportunity to support its patients who have a mental illness, which covers a wide spectrum that includes depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, intellectual disabilities and dementia. There has always been an awareness of the illness, and sadly some of those victims were made fun of, which doesn’t help,”
Dr Staverton Kautoke
“As a Tongan, your values play a big part in that, respecting not only others but what they bring with them. But you also realise the environment of violence some grow up in, prevents them from realising that”
“I work with Tongans from all walks of life, from the unborn all the way through to the elderly. We use our Tongan frameworks, and apply our values in order to best help our families.”
“I’m proud of myself to be a Pacific nurse who’s been recognised for my work, and I’m proud of being from the Tongan Health Society and my Tongan community”
Clinical Services Manager
At the Tongan Health Society we believe healthcare is much more than running tests and treating symptoms. We view the health of our patients within the context of their family, culture and local community. Our holistic, integrated approach to improved well being for those of Tongan descent, as well as others who use our services, encourages people to become engaged, enabled and empowered when it comes to their health.
