We need to say NOPE to shockingly high youth suicide numbers in NZ. We HOPE for #zerotargets and more prevention strategies.
The black on black, and white on white long sleeve NOPEforHOPE shirts highlight the hidden issues, stresses and mental illness that often lie beneath the surface, and can lead a young person to feeling helpless enough to take their own life.
These shirts donate to Youthline Wellington, whose 120 volunteers offer young people in the community a support system when they are in crisis, or not coping. Free phone, text or online chat counselling help lines are open to any young person needing support.
If you or a young person you know needs help please call Youthline - there is HOPE Counselling: 0800 37 66 33 (24/7)
