Suicide rates among native youth are higher than the national average. The reason for these statistics both among youth and the general native population is rooted in history: colonization, residential schools, socio-economic conditions, and a subsequent rise in substance abuse combined with loss of culture and traditional values. This program presents aboriginal groups who teach traditional and cultural values, raise suicide awareness through a cross-country walk, and create youth programs.
