Statistics released by the Chief Coroner last week show suicides in New Zealand have increased for the fourth year in a row with 668 people taking their own lives, a ten per cent rise from last year.

Lifeline’s clinical manager Renee Mathews says New Zealand needs to stop treating suicide rates as a done deal.
