We’ve updated our toolkit on Indigenous people and trauma.
Historically, suicide was a very rare occurrence among Indigenous peoples, and it was only after contact with Europeans that it became prevalent. Intergenerational trauma is one of the primary colonial effects contributing to the elevated rate of suicide among Indigenous people today.
We’ve just revised and expanded our Teen Suicide Prevention Resource Toolkit! This toolkit deals with the teen population as suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for teens in Canada. You can check it out here: http://bit.ly/TeenSuicideRT
