“We’re Trying to Keep Up”. A Report on the Availability and Accessibility of Information on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Issues in Nunavut
Zamparo J~~Seburn L~~et al
125 surveys were circulated to service providers in 26 communities across Nunavut. 48 were returned & analysed for this report by the 3 Nunavut regions: Qikiqtani, Kivalliq, & Kitikmeot. The report begins with a description of the survey & the responses to it. It then attempts to contextualize the survey’s salient points within best practices literature. Information around the themes of suicidal behaviour, risk factors, Nunavut demographics, & best practices in Canada call for a focussed discussion of innovation in Wraparound, Telehealth, & the use of Mental Health Authorities as potential solutions for northern communities.
