Suicide inquest needs overhaul - families

From Morning Report, 7:20 am on 7 August 2018

Family members who've lost relatives to suicide say they're desperate for change, the inquest system needs an overhaul, and mental health services need drastic improvements. A government mental health inquiry - a once-in-a-generation look at the entire system - was established in January and its panel has heard a raft of submissions. Yesterday, bereaved whanau met panellists in Auckland. Sophia Duckor-Jones spoke to some of the families afterwards.
