A devised theatre show called deVine has taken as its subject the tensions around a family dealing and not dealing with mental health issues.

RECollective Theatre Company wants to tackle this issue head on, and have consulted with Northlanders - the region continues to have a high suicide rate. The money raised from the initial season will go towards touring the show in Northland.
