Mitey Affirms and Develops Mana
The Mana Model
At its heart, Mitey is guided by the principles of the Mana Model. It is the foundation of our approach which recognises that children will thrive and improve their ability to gain knowledge and skills for positive mental health, if the five key forms of mana are acknowledged, affirmed and developed.
The Mana Model (Webber and Macfarlane 2018,2020) identifies five key forms of mana that help children thrive. These five key forms of mana have been intersected with four key areas of wellbeing to form Mitey's unique New Zealand approach to mental health education.
