The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand (MHF) is proud to offer a suite of free suicide prevention resources that provide information and support to people who may be at risk of suicide or self-harm, and the families, whānau, communities and others who support them.
Most people who consider suicide don’t want to die – they just want their pain to end or can't see another way out of their situation.
“Support from people who care about them, a sense of meaning and connection with their own culture, identity and purpose, can help them to find a way through,” MHF chief executive Shaun Robinson says.
“We all have a role to play in preventing suicide by reaching out and reminding people of hope. Although the statistics are sobering it’s important to remember that people can and do recover from dark times. There is help is available,” adds Mr Robinson.
These suicide prevention resources available through the MHF can support New Zealanders to support themselves and others when life feels too hard:
A new online brochure provides more information about each resource. Visit the suicide prevention webpage to view or download these resources. Print copies of selected resources may be ordered through the MHF webstore.
