Tēnā koe and as-salaam alaikum

The Health Navigator team is shocked and deeply saddened by the attacks on our Muslim brothers and sisters, peacefully at prayer yesterday in Christchurch. We send our aroha to their friends and families, and mourn their loss, which is our loss also.

Wherever you are in New Zealand, if you need to talk, you can free call or text 1737 any time to talk to a counsellor.

In the wake of the deeply sad events, the Ministry of Health and 1737 have created resources which give advice for those experiencing mental distress, including how to help and support children and help with grief. You can read more here.
