This one day wānanga elevates the mana of our stories and the power of talking about suicide prevention, postvention and healing. It utilises a Mātauranga and Kaupapa Māori Framework that includes Whakamōmori (suicide); whakamōmori ā muri (after suicide/postvention); Whaia te Mauriora (in pursuit of healing).
It brings the mana of leaders in the kaupapa to share stories and offer analysis for suicide prevention, postvention and healing. The entire focus of this Māori public health summer school programme is about the power of our voices and our stories for Māori suicide prevention, postvention and healing through trauma to achieve well-being of the whenua and the people.
