New resource to help whānau prevent suicide


New resource to help whānau prevent suicide

The Mental Health Foundation is proud to announce the release of its new resource –Tihei Mauri Ora – Supporting whānau through suicidal distress
.
Written with extensive consultation with Māori suicide prevention experts, whānau, and communities, this resource will help whānau and friends to support someone who is in distress or crisis.

“Māori are disproportionately affected by suicide,” says Witi Ashby, Māori Development Manager for Suicide Prevention Information. “We need to help whānau to have difficult conversations and help loved ones in distress, so they are empowered to prevent suicide in our communities.”

Tihei Mauri Ora features information about warning signs to look out for, how to handle a crisis, and explores ways to support loved ones struggling with suicidal thoughts and feelings.

Theresa Reihana’s powerful paintings illuminate Tihei Mauri Ora. Her art captures the wairua of Māori, reflecting the strength of whānau and the value of whakapapa and human connection.

“This resource is a valuable tool for whānau to support those who need it most,” says Moira Clunie, Development Manager for Suicide Prevention Information.
To get a copy of this resource, download the Tihei Mauri Ora PDF, or read the resource online on the SPINZ website. It is also available as an ePub to read on your mobile or tablet. Additionally, free print copies of the resource can be ordered from the Mental Health Foundation’s shop.
