The Star 7 News Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Thursday March 30 2017 East side youth at risk • By Bridget Rutherford YOUTH IN the eastern suburbs are more likely to have self-harmed, suffered anxiety, depression and low self-esteem than others in the country. The Prime Minister’s Youth Mental Health Project’s recent report showed out of the six areas assessed across the country, east Christchurch youth were most at risk. Data from three Christchurch schools showed 36 per cent had high anxiety or depression, 28 per cent had self-harmed, 43 per cent suffered low self-esteem and 36 per cent lacked a sense of belonging. Forty-three per cent lacked feeling safe at school, while 18 per cent suffered moderate to severe bullying. They were the highest in all categories, when compared with Northland, West Auckland, Hawke’s Bay, Lower Hutt and Invercargill. Community, youth and child services provider, St John of God Waipuna health and well-being manager Mohammad Zareei, said the figures were not surprising. He said they had clients as WORRYING: A report has shown east Christchurch youths are more likely to have self-harmed, suffered anxiety, depression and bullying. ​ young as 10 who were anxious to leave the house as a result of the earthquakes. There were “never enough” resources to cope with the four referrals they received a week, he said. “It’s not something we can fix by putting a plaster on it. If there is an issue in east Christchurch, it belongs to Christchurch. It’s not just the east.” Linwood College principal Richard Edmundson said the earthquakes had “heightened” some youths’ vulnerability. “Do I think about it in the middle of the night? Absolutely,” he said. “It’s unfortunately not surprising because logically that’s what we’d expect and post-disaster research had let us know this could be the case.” Central city to get free wi-fi • By Bridget Rutherford FREE WIRELESS internet will be rolled out in the central city over the next six months – and it is expected to draw more people in and boost business. The city council, in collaboration with Canterbury Transport Operation Centre, is working to offer free wi-fi in between the four avenues. City council Smart Cities programme manager Teresa McCallum said it was a ‘proof of concept’ project under way to make Christchurch an innovative and sustainable 21st century city. She said the phased roll-out of the wi-fi in the central city would happen over the next six months, starting in May. The city council was currently working on defining the trial scope, estimating costs and planning how to implement it, she said. If it proved successful, it would become a city council level of service. Central City Business Association chairman Brendan Chase said it was a good thing. “Having people in the central city is good for business, it’s as simple as that.” He said the wi-fi would help bring people into the central city, and in turn many of those people would then visit the businesses. “It’s going to appeal to a wide range of the community.” Ms McCallum said the city council would install radios, access points and switches for the network, by leveraging existing CTOC and city council networks. “It is anticipated that this will be structured in a similar way to council’s existing free public wifi network currently in libraries, service centres, and recreational facilities.” She said it was unlikely there would be a time limit for those using the wi-fi, although the plan was not finalised. She said until the wi-fi was rolled out, she could not give certain costs. But it was estimated to be about $7000 a month depending on data usage, she said. • Applications MUST be from Registered Charities • The project must be exclusively for the benefit of the elderly, defined as aged 65 and over.
