Community Initiatives

Through the work of Waka Hourua - We are seeing communities who are showing: 
  • There is great interest by individuals and collectives to take responsibility for suicide prevention
  • Strengths focus, resilience and capacity building activities associated with a strong Māori cultural identity are most popular approaches by Māori
  • There is increasing emphasis focus on young people and young people are leading the way for change
  • Open discussion and better understanding about suicide risks and protective factors  
  • Community level methods include promotional campaigns in various styles (e.g. kapa haka, dance, sport, art, music)
  • A recognition of whānau, hapu, iwi and the suffering associated with risk factors
  • Information has promoted positive messages, and promoted support (e.g. self help tips, help seeking behaviours and help line  contacts).
