Director, Kereru Research Evaluation and Development Ltd

  • The Te Ira Tangata study – Māori suicide intervention using a pōwhiri model of engagement.
  • Improving intervention and case management for Māori people who have attempted suicide: cultural assessment, risk assessment, problem solving therapy, postcards, patient support.

Dr Lynne Russell
Kai Tahu, Ngāti Kahungunu, Kati Mamoe, Rangitane, Ngāti Porou

  • Mental health services for Māori – what services are available, what works for Māori, what barriers to access exist?
  • Indigenous understandings of mental illness and mental health, and how these can work alongside clinical practice.

The presentation will be held as a webinar – a live online seminar that allows the presenters to interact with an audience. For those unable to attend the live event, it will also be recorded for later viewing on our website. Attendance at the webinar is free.

This series of free interactive seminars is intended for kaimahi/professionals from a range of sectors who work with Māori whānau, hapū, iwi, hapori Māori and individuals. This may include health providers, social services, iwi organisations, kaupapa Māori services, NGOs and community groups, tertiary institutions and high schools, local and central government, organisations directly involved in suicide prevention, and other people interested in preventing Māori suicide.
