  1. Aimee-Chantelle Gough: I move, that the focus of suicide prevention for young people move away from the medical model of trying to fix it with medicine and to focus more on living for a purpose. Working collaboratively with young people who are struggling with suicide and mental health, to make a plan to get their emotions out without hurting themselves.  Giving them reasons and opportunities to give their life more purpose rather than offering a quick fix of pills.

  1. Alofa So’olefai: I move, That the House look into adding a subject into high school that teaches young people skills on how to ‘survive in real life’. By way of example these would include topics like how to budget, what are taxes and how much you will be taxed, what are loans, the importance of saving etc.

  1. Kiri Crossland: I move, That young people’s rights be given increased recognition and importance within the House.  For example, the review on issues such as: rights of children and teens in care, the ‘starting-out wage’, eligibility for beneficiary aid from the age group 16-19, and increase youth-friendly accessible services.
