We honour and uphold the dignity of survivors who have so bravely shared their stories here. We acknowledge that some content contains explicit descriptions of tūkino - abuse, harm and trauma - and may evoke strong negative emotional responses for readers. Although this response may be unpleasant and difficult to tolerate, it is also appropriate to feel upset. However, if you or someone in your close circle needs support, please contact your GP or healthcare provider.
Respect others’ truths, breathe deeply, take care of your spirit and be gentle with your heart.
