Native Affairs - Suicide

By Renee Kahukura-Iosefa

In 2009, 17-year-old Kahu Morehu-Ahipene was killed in a carcrash.  Two years later his younger brother Hepa, who survived the crash, took his own life.  

This month their mother Heeni Morehu has launched her book "Tree of Life - My Journey with Grief".  Its aim, to break the silence around suicide.

Our reporter Renee Kahukura-Iosefa travelled with Heeni as she took her message around the Bay of Plenty.
