Event Details

The Mental Health Foundation in collaboration with the Office of the Pro Vice Chancellor Māori, Victoria University of Wellington present the first in a webinar series sharing indigenous knowledge and perspectives on Māori suicide prevention.

Preventing Māori Suicide: What do we need to do?

Presented by Keri Lawson-Te Aho
Kai Tahu, Ngāi Tūhoe, Ngāti Manawa, Kahungunu ki te Wairoa
PhD Candidate, Victoria University of Wellington
Lecturer, Centre for Hauora Māori, Department of Public Health, University of Otago, Wellington

This webinar looks at issues and priorities for Māori suicide prevention:

  • Framing Māori suicide prevention – how is the issue different for Māori?
  • Indigenous understandings of suicide and mental distress
  • Risk/protective factors and issues for Māori including historical trauma and access to culture
  • Kaupapa Māori research
  • Strategic approaches for Māori suicide prevention

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 will be of interest to 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.
