The state of mental health in Aotearoa is awful, and sadly the majority of us have experienced or know someone who has experienced some sort of mental distress. This is why it is so important to have organisations like Life Matters, who are doing amazing mahi to help members of our community who are at risk of, or affected by, suicide.
They aim to reduce the suicides in NZ by promoting suicide prevention strategies, educating and supporting our community, raising awareness about suicide by breaking the stigma and supporting those bereaved by it.
Life Matters run a Hope Centre in central Dunedin where you can go if you need help navigating Mental Health services or the aftermath of suicide. They offer heaps of support so please please please reach out if you / anyone you know needs help !! it's ok not to be ok, and you don't have to go through it alone <3
Donate if you can, check up on your mates and please reach out if you need to yarn.
love you all !!
