A resource to tautoko (support) fellow Tāne Māori around whakamomori (suicide) was launched in Murihiku this month with waiata and kōrero, and a bus hikoi around local Marae.
Kōrari, the Māori Public Health team at Ngā Kete Matauranga Pounamu Charitable Trust, organised the Marae hikoi to enable kōrero (discussion) around the new resource.
Resource developer Mohi Allen (Kaiwhakarite, Mental Health Foundation) said CHUR! All good, bro? is a Tāne Māori suicide prevention resource created to support Tāne Māori and whānau to best tautoko and engage with fellow Tāne Māori who may be going through tough times or thinking about suicide.
