This has served us well. In a general sense, all developed countries have faced similar mental health issues, and have relied on broad-brush information to plan for more and better services for people affected by mental disorder. Much progress has occurred since the first National Mental Health Plan and we are now entering a new phase of development with a greater emphasis on producing high quality information with which to build services that support consumer recovery. Around the world, countries are responding to the need for better information about the numbers of people with mental disorders, the impact that illness has on their lives, and the barriers to health service use. This interest has led to the development of the World Mental Health Surveys Consortium involving more than 28 countries, including New Zealand. One of the notable differences in New Zealand has been the approach to designing and implementing the survey with input from Mäori, Pacific and consumer perspectives. This approach reflects the unique cultural landscape of New Zealand and has been one of the many success stories of this survey. This final report represents a significant undertaking by a large group of people over a long period of time. There is a wealth of information in this report and much more to make available as further analysis is undertaken on the information collected during the survey. Everyone is to be congratulated for the commitment of their time and energy. In particular the Ministry offers special thanks to the 13,000 people who agreed to participate in the survey and who were willing to share often very personal information about their lives. This is the first time that a national survey to gather information about how many people experience problems with their mental health has been conducted in New Zealand. The contributions made by those New Zealanders who took part in it will offer an excellent base of information to support the implementation of the Second New Zealand Mental Health and Addiction Plan, Te T  ā huhu: Improving Mental Health 2005–2015 .
