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 childhood sexual and physical violence. In New Zealand approximately 1 in 4 Māori and 1 in 5 Pacific males will have experienced some kind of sexual / physical harm in their lives. For women and girls affected by historical sexual trauma click here.
Now start your path by tapping on the best page that meets your needs below or contact us.
For Māori and Pacific men, talking about sexual abuse (in particular) 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.
Thinking of getting help? You might be eligible for ACC support and counselling, click this link or email and let's find a way to help you. We can also arrange to korero with you face-to-face in the Auckland area or via phone (costs apply).
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 violence can cause. Many are available to call 24 hours a day, seven days a week unless otherwise specified (click the phone icon).
