Fatu Feu'u's new painting Amuia (a blessing) aims to draw attention to the crisis in youth mental health and suicide.

 It is one of the largest pieces he has ever done, and he says it speaks to the need for families and communities to nurture young people.

Amuia and pieces from three other artists are featured at the Pathways Forward exhibition at Bowen House this month.
