This week I was invited to be part of a panel conversation about the Suicide rates in New Zealand, on the television current affairs show “Waatea 5th Estate.” The episode was the second part of a two part special on the topic.
Waatea 5th Estate is a joint venture of Martyn “Bomber” Bradbury’s wesbite The Daily Blog and Waatea News. It screens live weeknights at 7pm on Sky TV 83 “Face TV” as well as streaming live on The Daily Blog and Waatea News.
The other guests were Annie Newman – Director of Campaingning for E tu, by phone Matthew Tukaki – National Suicide Prevention Coalition Australia, Chairman and Kevin Hague MP – Green Party Health Spokesperson.
