Everyone can finally watch the first episode of the new series "The Hard Stuff" on TV One tonight at 8.30pm.
And it's a really tough one: Lets Talk about Suicide Safely. We thought this one through very very carefully, and we had a lot of expert advice guiding us.
It's also important to say that we chose the families we talked to very carefully. They were all strong people with strong supports around them, and all of them said that taking part in the programme was helpful.
So I'll see you in 45 minutes and we can begin this thing. It's been a year in the making. I hope you guys like it.

TIPS FOR FAMILIES ABOUT DISCUSSING AND COPING WITH THIS EARTHQUAKE SEQUENCE.
After a complex event like this, where we have had multiple quakes in the night, along with a strong tsunami warning, many people can struggle to make sense of their many thoughts and feelings. Just like the science experts trying to make sense of a complex event, it will take some time.
Look after yourself and your loved ones. Even for those who lived through the Christchurch quake, many say that last night was outside their usual range of experience. You might be left wondering if you’re alone in feeling a complex range of thoughts and feelings, or just feeling scared. You’re definitely not alone.
Fear is sometimes useful because it acts like your body alarm system - and your body is telling you to be alert and ready for action. That might be helpful in trying to explain what is going on in your bodies to children, and why it feels like it does when there is an aftershock.
Fear tends to calm down reasonably quickly in events like this once you are feeling safe, but if the aftershocks continue for a while - which they are likely to - then these feelings can persist for some time too.
Check on your neighbours and family friends. It’s important that we stay connected as communities throughout New Zealand, and helping and being assured that our loved friends, family, pets and other animals are OK goes a long way in helping us cope better with this tricky time.
Helping people around you to make sense of their experience and to realise that they are unlikely to be alone in having these feelings can help people to make sense of their reactions and to help to normalise them.
Children can feel like their sense of the world being a safe, stable and largely predictable place has been undermined. So, its important to talk about what has happened in terms that your child will understand, when they are ready. Some kids might withdraw, some kids might have a lot of questions, and there are many other reactions. Try to answer the questions, as understanding might help with their processing, but don't force too much information on them. try not to expose them to too much incessant imagery or talk about quakes and tsunamis - talk matters, so try to keep a varied diet of that too.
Psychological distress isn’t uncommon, and kids might become fearful of things that they haven’t been scared of for years. Their sense of order and predictability in the world may have been undermined such that ordinary things don’t seem so ordinary any more.
So stick to routines as much as possible. Try not to make a fuss of the little stuff. Create a sense of warmth and safety, and connectedness - which also means re-engaging with the school routing as soon as buildings and transport networks allow you to. here are some helpful evidence-informed points to remember:
• It’s better to tell children what has happened. Giving them the facts (but without unnecessary detail) helps prevent their imagination taking over. • Encourage them to express emotions. Fear and sadness are their way of coming to terms with what has happened. Hold them or stay with them, offer support while they are upset and then talk about it afterwards. • Keep communication open by asking questions to find out what they are thinking or imagining. Tell them how adults feel and what the actions of adults under stress mean. This will prevent children blaming themselves. • Reassure them about the future, especially the small details of life which are such an important part of their world. • Encourage them to continue to be children, to play, explore and laugh when they want to, even though the adults may not feel like it. Children are often able to take their minds off the event better than adults. • Maintain routine and familiarity to help children see that life is secure and predictable. • Reduce change of any type to a minimum. When change is necessary, take time to prepare children for it. • Keep them informed of how the recovery is going and what to expect. • Don’t make this the time to correct bad habits, and don’t overreact to unusual misdeeds or bad behaviour. Talk about the behaviour with the child – they may need to let their tension out somehow. • Give children time to sort themselves out with your support. Don’t expect it to be over quickly. • Keep track of the child. Remember what they say and do, and try not to let lasting changes in temperament and behaviour creep up without noticing. • Make time for just being together. Take time out and re-establish recreational activities and outings as soon as you can. Pleasure is an important part of healing. • Re-involve the child in chores and responsibilities as soon as they are ready to cope with them again. • Take all their concerns, complaints and questions seriously. They may be trying to express something important which they don’t have the right words for. • Parents need to get support to work through their own reactions, so they can help their child.
Take care out there.
