Bereaved by Suicide Service

We are a free service that provides support and manaaki to individuals, whānau and communities who have lost someone to suicide.

Through a brief therapeutic response our network of Providers will support our hāpori (community) in honouring their grief and letting it find a place in their adjusted future.  

Aoake te rā  means ‘a new sun rises' - the emerging light being a symbol of hope as whānau adapt to their loss. Our name was gifted by Hon. Peeni Henare, Minister for Whānau Ora, Associate for Māori Health and reflects the many voices of individuals, whānau and communities who have shared their knowledge and experience in creating a service that helps people navigate life after suicide loss.

 Visit our Service page for more information about the service.
