#1  Toro Mai Tō Ringa Webinar Series


Do you want to improve how your mental health services work with Māori tamariki (children), rangatahi (adolescents) and whānau (families)?

Part of the solution for improving outcomes for Māori in mental health is providing culturally appropriate mental health services.  In order to assist services to achieve this, Te Rau Matatini developed the Toro Mai Tō Ringa website.  Toro Mai Tō Ringa provides access to Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) resources designed specifically for use with Māori. 

Starting from 16 March 2017, Te Rau Matatini will be launching four free bimonthly, 30-minute long Toro Mai Tō Ringa Webinars, to assist and provide examples to CAMHS and others working in related fields of how you can use the resources available on the Toro Mai Tō Ringa website.  The first two webinars will cover Te Tomokanga (CAMHS evaluation tool for use with Māori caregivers) and Te Tomo Mai (CAMHS evaluation tool for use with rangatahi Māori) respectively.  These webinars will be presented by Dr Kahu McClintock, who developed Te Tomokanga and Te Tomo Mai in her Doctorate and Post Doctorate.  These tools have been created to help services better understand and support their Māori clients.

Webinar One: Te Tomokanga – A Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) Evaluation tool for completion by Māori caregivers.

When: Thursday 16 March 2017 

Time: 10.30 - 11.00am

#2  Evaluation 101 Webinar Series


Are you a community based organisation looking for better ways to understand the impact and outcome of the programmes you deliver? 

Then Te Rau Matatini’s Evaluation 101 webinars maybe perfect for you. Through the evaluation of the Waka Hourua Community fund initiatives, Te Rau Matatini identified a major need among small community based organisations for knowledge about how they can better record and assess the who, what, and how of the important work that they are doing in their communities.  Starting from the end of March 2017, Dr Kahu McClintock and her team from Te Kīwai Rangahau, will be presenting four free bimonthly, 30-minute long webinars introducing the basics of evaluation for community based organisations.  These webinars will be perfect for anyone with little to no knowledge of evaluation wanting to learn about how it can be used. 

Webinar one: Evaluation 101

When: Thursday 30 March 2017

Time: 10.30am – 11.00am
