Thank you for your comment below Viona Hohaia. The intention of this post on social media was to align with the messages being sent out by most schools regarding this particular online content. Our focus and hope was to alert parents to this post. Many parents whom we had been in touch with were not aware that this video doing the rounds on multiple social media platforms. In this awareness, we're urging parents to #starttheconversation with their children in relation to what they may see online. If however, there were children who had seen the content, we provided some level of direction as to who they could turn to in order to find support, if this was needed. I do hope that this clarifies our intent. Have a lovely day.
I won't watch something like that either

In a Mental Health and Wellbeing report by the Mental Health Foundation, depression statistics show that an increasing number of New Zealanders, teens included, are having to deal with unpleasant feelings or emotions (psychological distress) in their day to day lives. This is impacting their daily lives and how well they are able to function. The report tells us several interesting facts that we should be paying attention to:
🔵In 2012, 5% of our youth were affected by depression and anxiety. Over the next 5 years we saw that number more than double to 11.8%. 🔵It was estimated that in 2017 alone, the number of New Zealand youth experiencing psychological distress increased from 58,000 to 79,000. 🔵In a shocking depression statistic, one in ten young Kiwis actively seeking mental health support is left waiting more than two months to be seen by a professional. 🔵New Zealand has the highest youth suicide rates between the ages of 15-19 in the OECD.
