“Fix the whole world”: rainbow suicide prevention in Aotearoa

September 9 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

A free webinar discussion about rainbow/LGBTI+ suicide prevention in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Suicide disproportionately affects rainbow communities in Aotearoa. New Zealand’s national strategies and programmes to prevent suicide don’t often acknowledge this, or seek to address population-specific risk and protective factors. Instead, rainbow community organisations and leaders often do this work outside of government and health system structures. 

The work of rainbow suicide prevention includes supporting individuals, but it’s also about building a world that is safer for rainbow people, where suicide is a less present option, and where people feel a sense of hope, acceptance and love. This work needs everyone.

This webinar for World Suicide Prevention Day will explore what rainbow suicide prevention looks like in Aotearoa, the importance of community leadership and how public health workers can effectively engage with rainbow communities. Moira Clunie will share findings from their recent Masters research that looked at how community-led rainbow suicide prevention could be strengthened in Aotearoa. They’ll be joined by Tommy Hamilton and Joey Macdonald for a conversation about this kaupapa.
