Scholarship to help fight suicide
A Taranaki man has won a $10,000 AMP National Scholarship to help launch an after-hours mobile suicide response unit.
Tama ‘Eminukutepua says most suicide response professionals become unavailable after business hours, which is when the act is likely to occur.
The former repo man who is also the driving force behind the Taranaki R.A.T.S or Riders Against Teen Suicide has lead a number of anti-suicide initiatives, including the green ribbon motorcycle rally.
AMP managing director Blair Vernon says this year AMP will provide up to $200,000 to help inspirational and gifted New Zealanders chase their dreams.
