Saw Country calendar last night. It was all about this young woman who had lost her boyfriend to suicide in 2017. Since spiraling down into alcohol and with only her dog as her mate, she picked herself up and has formed the Will to live Trust.

Rural suicide has the biggest percentage in New Zealand. 17 per 100,00 as compared with 10 per 100,00 in urban new Zealand. Why this is so high is a mystery but this young woman is doing something positive, in getting people to talk about their problems.

Farming by its very nature can be extremly lonely for young people. This trust is trying to raise the profile of this problem and we need to support them. Only by talking about it and giving them hope can the suicides be reduced.

I will put a link to the website on our links menu to the right of our home page. I encourage you all to support this very worthwhile venture

    • There is many out there that do a lot in suicide prevention that don’t want the recognition, but last nights program on one so young dedicating her life to doing what she has gives you faith in a system that no Government has achieved what they should have.

  1. There is an unfair political campaign of hate toward farming driven by the Greens. Townies should clean up their own urban ‘backyard’ before hurling unwarranted criticism at the rural folk who instead deserve our thanks for their hard work to supply the food we eat and for their environmental efforts.
