Reports

Advisory Group on Suicide Prevention. (2002). Acting On What We Know: Preventing Youth Suicide in First Nations. Ottawa: Health Canada.

In July, 2001 a Suicide Prevention Advisory Group was jointly appointed by National Chief Matthew Coon Come of the Assembly of First Nations and former Minister of Health Allan Rock. The purpose of this Advisory Group was to review the existing research and formulate a series of practical, doable recommendations to help stem the tide of youth suicides occurring in First Nations communities across Canada.

The Advisory Group met between July 2001 and June 2002 to collaborate on this task. Through discussion, literature review and preparation of background papers, key issues were identified and recommendations generated. This report provides an examination of these issues, from basic suicide data to specific factors affecting First Nations, and based on this, presents recommendations for action.
