Who we are
Mapu Maia was established in 2009 to provide education and clinical interventions to help raise awareness of problem gambling and reduce the harms within the Pacific community.
Since then, Mapu Maia has evolved and broadened its scope to include cross addictions, family violence and co-existing mental health issues. Programmes have included Serco Men’s Kohuora Prison, delivering “Talatalanoa” groups in church settings, public health education programmes in the community and much more.
