If you are worried about someone

Fofola e fala kae talanoa e kāinga: Roll out the mat so that the family can talk.

Research shows that many parents or family members are not aware their loved ones are thinking about taking their own life, and that most young people say they would first tell a friend about their suicidal thoughts. Maybe you are that friend? Or maybe you’ve just seen some stuff that is making you worry about someone. 

Suicide prevention is everyone’s business. The more informed we are as a community about suicide, the safer our community is for our people.

We have a role to support our families and young people.  We can all equip ourselves with information to help prevent suicide. Simply being approachable, trusted, reliable, willing to listen and accepting people for who they are, means that we can have an influential role in preventing suicide in our communities. Suicide is the most preventable kind of death, and almost any positively received action may help prevent it.
