āpōpō: the next day
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when it comes to giving support and manaakitanga to people struggling with mental health and suicide. The Āpōpō programme seeks to empower friends and people who work with youth with easy to learn tips and tools to move the metaphorical fence far away from the edge of the cliff. Āpōpō means The Next Day, because for those struggling in this area, the idea of making it to the next day is a powerful one.
Āpōpō is a dynamic and interactive programme that equips people with basic and effective tools to feel confident in their role of supporting those around them. It is not creating mental health professionals but merely empowering through experiential learning how those closest to us can help and change the statistics that make for grim reading.
