Hi, I’m Patrice.
Help me and other bereaved families put 579 shoes (representing loved-ones lost to suicide) up outside the Beehive on International Suicide Prevention Day.
Yet the Government vetoed setting a suicide target a panel they setup recommended (We still don’t have a target). They refuse to hold an independent mental health inquiry, despite 77% of Kiwis wanting one.
It’s time politicians did what’s right. They need to put aside politics so other families don’t go through what we have.We have a unique opportunity to make real change. But we don’t have long until the election.
