More than 500 New Zealanders die by suicide every year, making it the third most common reason why people die younger than expected.
Another 150,000 people think about taking their own life, around 50,000 make a plan to take their own life, and around 20,000 attempt suicide.
All of this behaviour has a devastating and often long-lasting impact on the lives of the people involved.
