The next video in the rangatahi series to be launched with Te Puni Kōkiri is #SuicidePrevention

Te Rau Matatini is contracted by Te Puni Kōkiri to create rangatahi Māori youth strength based whānau focused suicide prevention video resources.  The resource development was rangatahi led supported culturally and clinically.  And we have loved working on this project!  We are thankful for the opportunity, very proud of our rangatahi group and what they have achieved.

#SuicidePrevention is the third video in the series. Our rangatahi Māori have been working on these strong positive messages for our Māori youth all in spoken word. The video has a message to our rangatahi that no matter what "You are not alone!".

To whānau and friends, the messages to you all "Has anyone noticed the signs?" and you need to ask our rangatahi if something is not quite right "Are you ok?".

Share and download this powerful video message from our rangatahi please whānau.  We all can help prevent self harm and suicide.  Mauri Ora!
