Oranga: Early Intervention

February will provide two opportunities to participate in a Manaaki Tangata, a free one-day wānanga that builds on knowledge, skills, and capability from Te Ao Māori to promote oranga (wellbeing) for whānau Māori with early intervention strategies regarding suicide and self-harm.  Manaaki Tangata is led by Te Au, who are the Te Rau Matatini team delivering the National Māori Community Suicide Prevention programme of Te Waka Hourua (National Suicide Prevention Programme).

The Manaaki Tangata wānanga are open to hauora providers, iwi, marae, non-government organisations, Māori community networks and whānau champions; people working at frontline wanting to engage positively with Māori individuals and whānau to promote wellbeing.

Extending on the progress achieved in 2018, which included the delivery of the first  Manaaki Tangata wānanga in Tokoroa last year, there will be two wānanga taking place in Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland) in February.  One in Ōtāhuhu on the 14th of February and one in Oratia (West Auckland) on the 21st of February which is already full.  Register today to save your place.

Note: This course will be run in a bi-lingual format, therefore, although not essential, previous knowledge of Te Reo Māori would be an advantage.
