This DVD resource was created by Paula-Mauri Mokomoko who works at Te Puna Hauora ki Uta ki Tai in Tauranga as a youth worker. She is a past Te Rau Matatini recipient for the Bob Henare Award 2013.

Paula-Mauri identified that there are limited rangatahi appropriate resources to accompany programmes with rangatahi who are seen by CAMHS. In conjunction with Rangatahi involvement she developed an innovative resource where Rangatahi told their stories about their issues with alcohol and other drugs, as well as how they were able to stop.
