Manaaki Tangata

Wānanga Description

This free one-day wānanga provides an opportunity for participants to build upon knowledge, skills, and capability from Te Ao Māori to promote oranga (wellbeing) to whānau and have an understanding around early intervention strategies to prevent a crisis (such as self-harm and suicide).

This course will be run in a bi-lingual format, therefore, although not essential, previous knowledge in Te Reo Māori would be an advantage.

Registrations are essential as spaces are limited. Please notify us early if your circumstances change and you cannot make it to the wānanga.

Who is this for?

Hauora providers, iwi, marae, Non-government Organisations, Māori community networks and whānau champions - anyone wanting to engage positively with Māori individuals and whānau to promote wellbeing.
