Welcome you made it, let's go!!
Kia ora and warm pacific greetings welcome to StandingTallNZ.org. This website actively supports Māori and Pacific men, support people and communities affected by sexual violence. In New Zealand approximately 1 in 4 Māori and 1 in 5 Pacific males will have experienced some kind of sexual harm in their lives. If you or someone you know has been affected by sexual harm start your path by tapping on the best page that meets your needs below or contact us.
Talking about sexual abuse can affect us in different ways and requires different paths to help us heal. Take your time and go through the options on this website. And if you want to see videos where we talk about different themes around sexual abuse and recovery from it, try this page.
To also help you, we have included 0800 numbers to help you with the challenges that sexual abuse trauma can cause. Many are available to call 24 hours a day, seven days a week unless otherwise specified. If someone is in immediate danger, please dial emergency services 111
