Manaaki Tangata

Share This Post

Manaaki Tangata is a one day course for iwi, marae, Non-Government Organisations, Hauora providers, Māori community networks, whānau champions and kaimahi wanting.  Based on the principles of ‘manaaki’ the wānanga covers knowledge and skills from a Te Ao Māori framework,  Manaaki Tangata promotes an understanding of ‘early intervention strategies’ to prevent crises such as self-harm and suicide through utilising practices that promote oranga to whānau.
Essentially, the Manaaki Tangata wānanga focus on how to enhance strategies to effectively engage with Māori individuals and whānau.
The wānanga is delivered bi-lingually, and so a basic understanding of te reo me ona tikanga is helpful to participants.  The facilitators have experience in suicide prevention, mental health and addiction treatment with Māori.
