We see that cultural revitalisation is suicide prevention. Reclaiming identity as Māori and understanding our culture through practicing whānaungatanga , ahurutanga, manaakitanga, kaitiakitanga and aroha, tika and pono, is vital to the essence of a Māori person.
Our aim is to re-discover our grounding in this world through kai, atua and Mātauranga Māori. Learning about the atua that connects with us and relates to our health and well-being.
This adventure -based Indigenous Therapy Retreat experience helps individuals face and overcome emotional issues, addictions, and many other challenges facing participants, and will assist them in developing beneficial life skills.
We offer a 2 week mental health programme looking through a Te Ao Māori and outdoor lens.
This is an initiative that informs whānau about suicide and prevention and assists them through the trauma of losing a loved one to suicide. Easing the impact of suicide and strengthening resilience is the essence of our kaupapa.
This programme creates opportunities to connect , uplift and empower whānau, hapū and iwi. This is a Māori-centric trust based in Rotorua. Because of lived experience, we understand the importance of whānau support both in prevention and postvention.
Poutiriao targets whānau who are struggling with mental health, addiction, depression, low self-esteem and self-worth issues from their personal and intergenerational experiences of trauma.
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.
