Self-harm and suicides within Māori communities is a serious issue. Te Au provides culturally relevant workforce training and approaches to increase responsiveness and efficiency working with whānau Māori in a culturally appropriate way, to decrease suicide risks and build oranga (wellbeing).
The Te Au suite of wānanga style training programs provide an in-depth Māori perspective, utilising tikanga and mātauranga Māori, Kaumātua korero, combined with mental health expertise and experience working with whānau Māori. The courses bring a depth of knowledge, learning and strategies from Te Ao Māori, to provide early intervention to people in mental distress, or with possible suicide risks that may be encountered at different times, such as during work with the community, with whānau, or with individuals.
