Aboriginal Suicide Elder Symposium

"The suicide rate among Indigenous youth aged 15-24 is 5 to 6 times the rate seen in the general Canadian population" - Mental Health and Suicide in Indigenous Communities in Canada CMFS 2017

Our children are dying.  Just this week another suicide of a young girl in a remote northern Ontario town.  Our Aboriginal Elders are pulling together from remote towns across Ontario to set an action plan to react to this suicide crisis.  They will soon gather together in Sioux Lookout.   Funds will be used to help cover transportation costs of Elders and a film crew of two.  WE need to work together to stop our loss of life.
