Organization Name: Toi Matarua Rongoā Manawa

Person Name: Charlizza Matehe & Sarah Pihema

Location: Maraenui, Napier / Ahuriri

Our initiative will deliver a series of three national rangatahi suicide prevention and postvention wānanga in conjunction with the Māori suicide doctoral research of Charlizza (Harris) Matehe. Each wānanga will be a 2-day event involving 50 participants per rohe. These rohe are: the Bay of Plenty (delivered in Kawerau), East Coast (delivered in Wairoa) and Te Ika a Maui (delivered in Upper Hutt). Based on Sir Mason Durie’s Te Whare Tapa Whā model, each wānanga will include workshops designed to strengthen the holistic hauora of rangatahi who have been affected by suicide. These workshops are authentically designed and delivered by rangatahi for rangatahi and led by rangatahi who have been affected by suicide.
