Dr John Fitzgerald:
New Zealand has high suicide rates, especially amongst our youngest and most vulnerable. However, we have no national suicide prevention strategy, with the previous strategy expiring in 2016 and no new strategy agreed despite wide consultation in 2017.

What are the research data, philosophical positions, and social pressures that account for this? What are the underlying questions that must be resolved before a meaningful policy direction can be established? This talk will focus on these questions and offer potential solutions.
