This is the last of our videos in the rangatahi series to be launched with Te Puni Kōkiri its called #OutintheOpen.
Te Rau Matatini was contracted by Te Puni Kōkiri to create rangatahi Māori youth strength based whānau focused suicide prevention video resources. The resource development was rangatahi led and supported culturally and clinically. We are very thankful for the opportunity to produce the series of videos and are incredibly proud of our rangatahi group and what they have achieved. #RangatahiRangatira
#OutintheOpen is the fourth video in the series. Our rangatahi Māori have been working on these strong positive messages for our Māori youth. The video has a message to our rangatahi that you should talk about how you are feeling to someone you trust. It can be the best thing you can do.
To whānau and friends, the messages to you all "Lets talk about suicide - get it out in the open" and "Always take suicide talk seriously" our rangatahi need us to be there for them when they open up.
Share and download this powerful video message from our rangatahi please whānau. We all can help prevent self-harm and suicide. Mauri Ora!
