Why are maori more likely to self-harm than non-maori?
"Maori, at 75.1 hospitalisations per 100,000 people, were more likely to self-harm than non-Maori, with rates of 61.6 per 100,000.
The Health Ministry said anti-suicide initiatives included better follow-up care, mental health awareness campaigns and addressing suicide rates among the Maori community in particular."
Why? And what are the iwi organisations doing about it as over 13% of maori are unemployed and it could go up to 30% - 40%.
What specific initiatives are TRONT doing for Ngai Tahu in this area? Or are we going to have to wait until more of our people kill themselves, or try to.
