Mike King’s on a mission. We need to get on it with him.

We need to be working with kids, parents, people, all of us, to help us ever get to the point where we ever really even need to seriously think about self-harm. It shouldn't even enter our conversation - as we should feel the support, love and self-worth the lets us know we have value on the planet, in whatever way we choose.

And what a mission it is.

In my talk with David Benefell, we talked about the necessity of men (and everyone really) to have a mission. It’s really hard to get passionate about anything if you don’t know what it is you want to get passionate about.

Mike knows what he is passionate about. Helping kids.

I am happy to simply help do whatever I can to amplify his message.

In 2020, in Aotearoa 119 young people died by suicide and it is estimated another 3,100 tried to take their own lives. While Government agencies are doing their best, some kids are stuck waiting up to six months to receive the counselling they so urgently need.
