[Comment] Inuit take action towards suicide prevention

Sept 10, 2016, is World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD), an opportunity to reflect on suicide in a global context, and also on what regions can learn from each other. The unique challenges of addressing suicide within Indigenous communities calls us to learn from efforts by and with Indigenous peoples, which may have global relevance. Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK), a political organisation representing Inuit in Canada, launched its National Inuit Suicide Prevention Strategy (NISPS) on July 27, 2016,1 in Kuujjuaq, Nunavik.
