Sentencing information and latest support news

Sentencing information

Whether you are attending court, hearing things in the media, or just aware that the sentencing is taking place, it’s normal to feel upset or stressed with media coverage and other reminders of the March 15 attacks.

It can help to understand more about what is happening at court and some of the information and services that are available to support you during this time.

Victims Information has set up a web page specifically for victims, families and those affected by the attacks on the two Christchurch Mosques. It has information on court processes and sentencing as well as support.     

If you will be watching the sentencing from home this two-page resource has specific wellbeing advice

If you or someone you know is struggling, help is available. Visit the Tips and guidance section for resources to help with self-managing your own or a loved one’s mental health and wellbeing. To talk to someone go to Immediate help or Health providers and counsellors for contact details.
