Walk it like I talk it
I'm walking the length of NZ to fund-raise for the Mental Health Foundation of NZAuckland
In the year 2018 685 New Zealanders lost their lives to suicide.
"After the release of the [2018 suicide] statistics on Monday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern reiterated that she doesn't believe we need a suicide reduction target.
"There is no question our suicide rate is too high," she told media at her weekly post-Cabinet conference. "It's one of our biggest long-term challenges, not just as a Government, but as a nation."
She says she questions whether a target would help to bring the suicide rate down, as she has yet to see any convincing evidence.
"A target implies we have a tolerance for suicide, and we do not. The goal is for no one to be lost to suicide," (NewsHub, 26/08/2019).
To fund-raise for suicide prevention services in NZ (and to share advice on how to approach the topic of suicide) I'm going to "Walk it like I talk it" and walk the length of NZ. All funds raised will be donated to the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.
