Meet Te Au
Waka Hourua is the Māori and Pasifika National Suicide Prevention Programme. The goal of Waka Hourua is to build the capacity of Māori whānau, hapū, iwi, Pasifika families and communities to prevent suicide.
Te Rau Ora (originally Te Rau Matatini) is New Zealand’s indigenous Māori organisation providing a range of local and national programmes to improve Māori Health. We have changed our name but not our passion nor our commitment – Strengthening Māori Health & Wellbeing is at the core of what we are doing.
Māori Suicide Prevention Initiatives
Our mission is to support Māori individuals, whānau, iwi, hapū and communities to unleash their full potential and have the best possible health and wellbeing outcomes.
