There are 4 video resource in total all for you to download. Other support assets were developed alongside the video resource too such as emoji, rangatahi images, hashtags. These too will be available to download by the end of the year.
#MāoriOra is the first video launched. Our rangatahi youth Māori have been working on these beautiful strong positive messages about being young Māori 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?".
The video has a strong message about taking care when we message each other, make posts and image share.
#TechTikanga will help us make good decisions when you are posting something online on text, private message, on social networks or apps like Snapchat, Instagram or Skype.
No matter how much you may trust the person you send it to at the time, it makes it hard to control what happens next.
Problems often arise around people you thought you could trust, sharing the image, joining in the negative comments even leading to online harassment and bullying. These posts you choose to send are intentional! It is all about owning “your image” once a post or an image has been shared you lose control of it.
This is the last of our videos in the rangatahi series to be launched with Te Puni Kōkiri its called #OutintheOpen.

#OutintheOpen is the fourth video in the series. Our rangatahi Māori have been working on these strong positive messages for our Māori youth. The video has a message to our rangatahi that you should talk about how you are feeling to someone you trust. It can be the best thing you can do.
To whānau and friends, the messages to you all "Lets talk about suicide - get it out in the open" and "Always take suicide talk seriously" our rangatahi need us to be there for them when they open up.
We all can help prevent self-harm and suicide. Mauri Ora!
