Suicide among Maori is a com- plex issue, and most people don't know how they can help. For those who want to learn about Maori suicide prevention, a free series of live and interactive webinars will be broadcast in 2013. The Mental Health Foundation (MHF) is hosting the three webin- ars in collaboration with the Office of the Pro Vice Chancellor Maori, Victoria University of Wel- lington. The webinars will address the issue of Maori suicide from an indigenous perspective. Pres- enters are respected Maori who will speak from their own per- sonal and professional experien- ces in Maori suicide prevention. We hope that these webinars will increase understanding of what can be done to prevent suicide, and increase viewers' capacity to help vulnerable people in their own whanau and com- munities,'' MHF chief executive Judi Clements says. The webinars will appeal to anyone interested in Maori suicide prevention, including kai- mahi/professionals from a range of sectors who work with Maori whanau, hapu, iwi, hapori Maori and individuals. Whanau is pivotal... it is the key to suicide prevention,'' Dr Nicole Coupe says. She will be co- presenting the third webinar in March with Dr Lynne Russell. For Maori, culture is the centre-point of being connected... whanau will bring them back to their language, their whakapapa, their whenua, their marae. Con- necting Maori with whanau is how we can bring them back to life.'' The webinar series will be an an important platform and vehicle for examining how we respond to Maori suicide as wha- nau, hapu, and iwi,'' Keri Lawson- Te Aho, presenter of the first webinar says. The webinar schedule is: Preventing Maori suicide: What do we need to do? January 29 with Keri Lawson-Te Aho from 12.30pm to 1pm. Preventing Maori suicide: Involving whanau and com- munity. February 19 with Di Grennell and Michael Naera from 12.30pm to 1pm. Preventing Maori suicide: Improving care and intervention. March 19 with Dr Nicole Coupe and Dr Lynne Russell from 12.30pm to 1p. Webinars are online seminars where presenters interact with an audience live over the internet. Register for the webinars online at http://www.spinz.org.nz/page/ 323-webinars.

ActiveSmart provides free, customised training advice for everyone from beginners just getting back into physical activity, to serious mult- isport and marathon competitors -- and it can help you avoid injury in the process. Many people who've been spending a bit too much time on the couch make the mistake of throwing themselves back into exercise with- out the right prep- aration,'' ACC pro- gramme manager -- sport, Isaac Carlson says.

But he has a hearing problem that needs sorting before he can effectively learn and achieve at school. Tyler has fluid in both ears that is stopping his ear drums from vibrating to sound and he needs grommets -- ventilation tubes placed in his ear drums -- to assist with regaining his hearing. Initially, his family were told the waiting list for grommet surgery was 18 months. Fortunately, their GP intervened, advocating for more urgent intervention. Tyler was then placed on the semi-urgent list and his family was advised it would be at least six months before he could get an appoint- ment to be assessed for surgery. The National Foun- dation for the Deaf are aware there is a national review of grommet fund- ing in progress and are drawing this case to the public's attention to show there is already insufficient funding for children such as Tyler.
