This review is on the section of “Suicide in Canada” which discusses suicide among First Nations & Inuit peoples. The reviewer found the chapters in this section pointed out the need for collaboration between experts & improved communication & teamwork by community service providers. A shortcoming of the work is that it failed to mention the impact of a chronic shortage of safe, adequate, & affordable housing. This factor has been identified as a key determinant in overall health & well-being.
