Producer Bronwyn Wilde spoke to Carla Na Nagara, the director of the newly created Suicide Prevention Office about their Strategy and Action Plan “Every life matters - He Tapu te Oranga o ia Tangata”. Prior to this, Na Nagara worked for 12 years with the Coroner. She will hold this new role for two years initially, while the Office is supported by the Ministry of Health before becoming a stand-alone Office in the near future. She began by talking about the misconceptions around the causes of suicide. 

If you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal thoughts, you can speak to someone at Lifeline on 0800 543 354
