Comedian and mental health advocate Mike King's message of hope to Whanganui City College will be screened to the nation this week.
The final episode of Three's The Hui for the year will capture King's visit to City College in early November.
"It's a cool message that Mike gives," principal Peter Kaua said.
"It's something everyone should know about and support. The programme shows Mike talking to the kids and he talks about our student [head boy Eruera Heitia-Ponga] who died by suicide four years ago.

"The kids were transfixed by Mike when he was talking."
Kaua said the school had a copy of the programme which would be shown to students on Friday. Staff who had already seen it were moved to tears.
The Hui screens on Three at 9.25am on Sunday, December 2.
