Yesterday was the first official day of winter in Aotearoa - and for many, the 'winter blues' are a struggle. Be kind to yourself, look out for others, and seek help if/when you need it. 💕 Remember you can free call or text 1737 anytime to speak with a trained counsellor. https://t.co/1ZYSg7Hie0

We are absolutely thrilled by NZ Police’s announcement that ARTs will not be part of the New Zealand policing model in the future. Thank you to everyone who spoke up, provided feedback to police, and reshared posts all over social media – we made this happen together, Aotearoa! https://t.co/FNIUl8U2jl

International evidence demonstrates that people who are mentally unwell have a far greater risk of being killed by armed law enforcement officers than others. During the trial, ARTs attended 88 threats/attempts of suicide and 38 mental health related incidents.

Our cops should not be armed, should not have to be first responders for mental health issues, and definitely not both at the same time. https://t.co/L3k6vfe0Bx

See our original letter here: https://t.co/VKIHVunWsB To give feedback on the ART trial to the NZ Police, head here: https://t.co/Rtlye3ye9D The Newshub article we've referred to: https://t.co/1iFpTCYCM1

Concern and anger is spreading throughout the world about the role armed police play in the lives of people of colour. We must face the fact that this is an issue in Aotearoa, particularly for Māori and Pasifika, and we must not allow this trial to continue. #ArmsDownNZ

This was not the intent of the ART trial and it greatly concerns us that people who were already extremely distressed were met with armed police. The trial has proven that armed police have no place in our communities.

International evidence demonstrates that people who are mentally unwell have a far greater risk of being killed by armed law enforcement officers than others. During the trial, ARTs attended 88 threats/attempts of suicide and 38 mental health related incidents.

Sadly, those fears were realised. Figures obtained by Newshub last week show the trial had a disproportionate impact on Māori: nearly half of those apprehended were Māori, and Pasifika made up another 11 percent.

Our primary concern was that guns would be disproportionately used against individuals experiencing mental health crises and suicidal distress, and Māori and Pasifika communities.

Today we’re joining those expressing deep concern at the results of the trials of Armed Police Teams patrolling our communities. When this trial was launched, we publicly stated that the trial posed an unjustifiable risk of serious harm and death to our most vulnerable people.

#ArmsDownNZ I'm a physician. We deal with evidence and the evidence is that the presence of weapons escalates the risk of harm and violence. The evidence is also that the violence/harm will disproportionally affect the marginalized and minorities. No place for this in Aotearoa.

Police brutality is a mental health issue too. People with serious mental illness are 16x more likely to be killed by the police. Police are frequently the first point of contact for vulnerable people in distress. We need to protect our communities #ArmsDownNZ
