Rangatiratanga me Kotahitanga Leadership and Working Together
Recognition is given to the National leadership Group and their guidance provided to both Te Rau Matatini and Le Va - the leadership and voice for Māori and Pasifika suicide prevention.
- Māori whānau, hapū, iwi, Pasifika families and communities are strongly connected to one another and people actively participate in the wider community
- Māori whānau, hapū, iwi, Pasifika families and communities have their own approaches and plans in place and are actively building resilience and reducing risks of suicide
- people are informed about and assisted to access the services available to them
- community leaders empower people, foster resilience and bring people and resources together
- families, whānau and communities have stronger relationships and confidence to be able to talk about their difficulties
- people bereaved by suicide receive the support they need within their families and whānau, and
- a growing evidence base of what works for Māori whānau, hapū, iwi, Pasifika families and communities to prevent suicide, and how best to engage and evaluate.
The group provides a distinctive and informed voice for Māori and Pasifika suicide prevention, and monitor all aspects of the programme as it contributes to the growing evidence of what works for Māori and Pasifika.
The Leadership Group have identified three areas of critical discussion:
- The need for a legacy model (a tangible resource for community utilisation), and
- The evidence of useful strategies generated from the investment that has added value from this unique Māori and Pasifika suicide prevention programme.
- Aligning the programme, its objectives and aspirations alongside the Waka Hourua Outcomes Framework.
