Tiakina Te Āhuru Mōwai – Kirikiriroa – Hamilton
July 6 @ 10:00 am - July 7 @ 4:00 pm
Are you a frontline worker, a health professional or practitioner of a service who supports Women and their whānau?
Could you say that your practice or service ensures an approach where women and their whānau are safe from mental distress, suicide, family violence?
If these questions have prompted your interest – you will be interested in attending this wānanga.
Tiakina te Āhuru Mōwai Wananga.
We understand women may present to various agencies with different physical, mental health problems, and maybe screened about family violence. Yet most protocols will not ascertain risk of self-harm and suicide or have a consideration of her mental health or that of her whānau. Nor recognise that the help-seeking behaviour may be a sign of heightened risk.
The wānanga is built on the practice evidence of Māori experts who have dedicated careers to working with Māori women and their whānau. The rationale for this program was informed through a workforce needs analyses of mental health and addiction workers, family violence and social service agencies.
(Please be aware the content of the wānanga can be triggering for some)
Delivered by Kirimatao Paipa & Karina Cootes. It will begin at 10am each day and finish at 4pm. There are only 30 spaces available.
