This study explores how 5 British Columbian First Naitons women moved through suicidal ideation & intention in their youth. Much of their healing process was facilitated by a reconnection to their cultural identity & traditional native spirituality. 3 of 12 themes that emerged suggest that the impact of separation from family, community, & culture was significant for each of these women.
