It’s no secret that we have a problem here in Aotearoa when it comes to mental health, & it seems that men's mental health and male suicide rates are a growing prevalent issue.

Research shows the suicide rate in the construction industry is almost double any other industry in addition, male suicide is increasing within our Maori and Pacific Island communities; and rural Farmers have alarmingly high suicide rates.

They called themselves Monkey off your Back, and since then they've been lifting the profile for charities as well as fighting the stigma surrounding mental health.

 

Producer Louis Laws spoke with Terry Bluck, an electrician based in Auckland, who talked about the initiative, as well as the ride they have coming up on the 1st of February...

Recently fullers put out another statement in a media release this morning, with Fullers CEO  Mike Horne, saying the company will not compromise on the health and safety of its customers and its people, in response to criticism for the decision to cancel services when cruise ships are thrusting in the harbour.

Our breakfast host Rachel spoke with Mayor Phil Goff this morning about what is going on, as well as his response to the issue...
