National Maori Suicide Prevention Conference In Whanganui

Thursday 29 May 2014

Whanganui Racecourse Purnell Street

Whanganui

9.00am – 5.00pm

Kia Piki te Ora is a national Maori suicide prevention programme delivered from 9 sites across New Zealand.

The annual Kia Piki te Ora national Conference will bring people from around the country together in Whanganui to discuss proactive pathways forward, action based strategies and positive initiatives that will support the prevention of suicide.

Stormie Hunter Rogan, Whanganui Kia Piki te Ora Coordinator of Nga Tai o te Awa
said A community approach and action is vital from whanau level to governance for real change. It is important that across all sectors and all levels come together to work together to advocate and influence meaningful and positive change for every community.

The “silent issue” needs to be addressed so appropriate strategies can be developed.

The theme for the conference is He muka no te taurawhiri a Hinengakau- A thread from the woven rope of Hinengakau. This symbolizes the many and varied roles that we all play which are equally as important in regards to preventing suicide within our whanau and communities.

The Honorable Tariana Turia , Professor Sir Mason Durie, Entertainer Mike King and a range of experts will contribute to discussions around the impacts of suicide in our community and the nation and how we can prevent it.

Registrations are open and more information can be obtained at www.ntota.co.nz
