All ages urged to Chalk the Talk
People of all ages took part in the Chalk the Talk event at Whangārei’s Canopy Bridge on Saturday where chalk was used to highlight the message for young people who felt afraid of life or may harm themselves to communicate how they feel.
Northland’s Future Leaders group organised the fun, friendly approach to the issue, hoping to reach out to others their age who may not be hearing the advice to talk about depression and suicide.
