In 2019, Asian Family Services worked with the Suicide Mortality Review Committee from Health Quality and Safety Commission New Zealand to look into suicide among the Asian community in New Zealand.
People who feel suicidal often feel they are alone and their family, whānau and friends would be better off without them. Support from people who care about them, and connection with their own sense of culture, identity and purpose, can help them to find a way through.
In 2018, AFS launched a suicide prevention resource for Chinese People. There are 2 videos, one is in Mandarin and the other is in Cantonese.
