New mental health segment for Pasifika launching on 531pi

From , 6:00 am on 29 September 2021

A new mental health segment led by Pacific organisations in New Zealand is being launched online and on air this week to address mental health concerns in the Pasifika community.

The programme is called Ngalu Fānifo, which is a Tongan metaphor meaning 'when life gets difficult and stormy seas get rough, we need support to ride those waves and gently make it back to shore'.

Pasifika Medical Association through Pasifika Futures - the Whānau Ora agency for Pacific families - will partner with the Pacific Media Network to deliver 20 to 30 minute segments daily starting on Wednesday 29 September at 12:40pm on Radio 531pi.
