In June we were contacted by a senior project manager from the Ministry of Health in New Zealand. She is leading on their new national suicide prevention strategy. She explained that she had read Joy’s book about our work, had shared it among her colleagues at the Ministry, and wanted to learn more, to assist them as they develop their new strategy.
Further phone and email contact has taken place and Joy has been able to provide detailed information about our work. She has subsequently received an email from the Ministry which commends the work of Suicide Crisis, and describes it as inspiring. In the email, they asked Joy to reflect on the fact that the work of Suicide Crisis “is supporting other work across the world”.
