Will to Live - helping rural NZ's most vulnerable young people
'Will to Live' provides on-going mental health awareness and education touring regional NZ.Nationwide
Suicide in rural New Zealand is higher than any other demographic having a lasting ripple effect through a community - especially with our young people, who are often the largest statistic.
ABOUT 'WILL TO LIVE'
'Will to Live' was formed as a chartiable foundation to provide on-going awareness and education through touring regional New Zealand targeted at the vulnerable young rural New Zealanders who are often isolated from essential mental health services.
Elle Perriam, founder of Will to Live, lost her partner who was a North Otago shepherd to suicide in 2017 and she is determined to spread a positive message of gratitude to encourage relisence using her late partner's huntaway, Jess, as a symbolic reminder of the need to Speak Up collectively.
ABOUT THE 'SPEAK UP TOUR'
On the 2019 Speak Up Tour (June-August 2019), Elle, Jess and many inspirational local and national speakers will host a casual evening of talks & tips on the topic of getting through the tough times on your own when help might not be near, and how to navigate the storms together as a community.
Use of funds
