Making a decision about Suicide Prevention Training

Share This Post

Te Au provides a suite of training. We have found that our training has:

  • Provided forum for participants to reflect on their own beliefs and attitudes about suicide
  • Assisted participants to develop their knowledge and skills for responding to people who are suicidal
  • Increased participants’ capacity to identify warning signs and risk factors for suicide and self-harm, and provided practical strategies
  • Provided opportunities for participants to increase their capacity and capability to build whānau resilience
  • Provided opportunities to network with others who share an interest in preventing suicide and strengthening Māori.

Sometimes, we find that people are looking for something, but tend to be unsure of what type of training might suit them. So, we pulled together some basic questions for people to consider when looking for training and registering for our wānanga:

  • What are looking for? What are your learning needs?
  • Are you looking for training targeted at basic awareness or in-depth knowledge about Māori and suicide prevention?
  • Do you have or want a basic understanding of Māori perspectives toward Wellbeing?
  • Are you looking for training with a unique Māori difference?
  • Are you looking for strategies to help whānau (in either prevention or postvention) ?
  • Are you wanting to access Māori experts with experience in suicide prevention, youth health, mental health and addiction, trauma and Whānau Ora?

If you are still curious about our training, email Tio Sewell for a korero.
