Creating hope through action - World Suicide Prevention Day live event

On World Suicide Prevention Day 2021, the Suicide Prevention Office hosted a live event to discuss the issue of suicide and hear stories from rangatahi about the things they do to support their wellbeing and the wellbeing of their Whānau and friends.

Hear what they have to say and then listen to a panel discussion from some suicide prevention experts and mental health advocates as we shine a light on suicide prevention through this year’s theme of creating hope through action.
