Firelight provides research and data collection for the National Inuit Suicide Prevention Strategy
The National Inuit Suicide Prevention Strategy (NISPS) is a tool in assisting communities, policymakers and governments to work together to address the full breadth and complexity of both risk and protective factors known to help reduce suicide in our communities.
On the third anniversary of the release of NISPS, Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami announced a research and data collection project (conducted by Firelight) and the launch of a website.
The report presents findings from an environmental scan that was undertaken to support NISPS objectives. The scan involved a review of both grey and academic literature, and a series of key informant interviews with individuals who have experience working on suicide prevention and related initiatives across Inuit Nunangat.
