Among 15-19 year olds New Zealand has by far the world's highest suicide rate
Hundreds of pairs of shoes are making their way round New Zealand in a project to raise awareness of suicide in the country. Bereaved families have donated a pair of shoes for each loved-one lost to suicide.
It's part of a campaign by community groups to try to get the government to improve mental health services. Jane Stevens lost her son Nicky in 2015.
