Waka Hourua Community Initiative: Te Ringa Atawhai
by Angus Elkington
Ringa Atawhai Trust is an education, information, and health promotion referral service. The Trust’s service boundaries extend from Te Hapua in the north, to Ruawai and Te Hana in the south encompassing Te Aupouri, Te Rarawa, Ngāti Kahu, Ngā Puhi, Ngāti Whatua, Ngāti Hine and Ngāti Wai. Te Taitokerau is over-represented in suicide statistics and in all indicators that give rise to the risk factors that contribute to suicide (http://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/mental-health-and-addictions/working-prevent-suicide/understanding-suicide-new-zealand).
