Rog, Bryce and Mulls take a real look at New Zealand's suicide stats

The Morning Rumble 21/08/2020

This morning we took a look at the numbers behind suicide in New Zealand after the country's Chief Coroner revealed our provisional suicide rate is at its lowest in three years.

Judge Deborah Marshall released the figures for the year to June 30 on Friday, which show 654 people died by suicide - 471 male, 183 female - compared to 685 the year before.

Bryce, Mulls and Rog spoke about the figures, pressures from New Zealand's current situation and where to get help if you need it.
