Te Ihi Ora

Te Ihi Ora is a one-day wānanga that provides an exploration of important concepts and practices from kaumātua korero, encouraging participants to evaluate concepts within their own professional practice. Te Ihi Ora is a proactive response to challenging the issue of suicide for Māori. Wānanga are delivered in a bi-lingual format, therefore (although not essential) previous knowledge in Te Reo Māori would be an advantage.

What will be covered?

  • This wānanga builds on a Māori framework for working in a pre and post-vention space with mental health, self-harm and suicide issues.
  • This wānanga draws on an in-depth Te Ao Māori methodology, from kaumātua kōrero, for working with people effected by suicide or at risk of suicide.  The facilitation team have experience in suicide prevention, mental health and addiction treatment and have years of experience working with whānau Māori.
  • A basic level of Te Reo Māori is recommended.
