The Honouring Life Network is a project of the National Aboriginal Health Organization. The Web site offers culturally relevant information and resources on suicide prevention to help Aboriginal people deal with a problem that has reached crisis proportions in some First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities in Canada.
In addition to providing a place for Aboriginal youth to go and read about others dealing with similar issues, the site allows those working with Aboriginal youth to connect, discuss and share suicide prevention resources and strategies. The site's directory of suicide prevention resources will be updated on a regular basis with the hopes of providing Aboriginal communities with a comprehensive inventory of suicide prevention materials.
Funded by Health Canada, this Web site stemmed from a joint working group of the Indian Health Service in the United States and the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch of Health Canada. Funding for the site has been provided through the National Aboriginal Youth Suicide Prevention Strategy.
The National Aboriginal Health Organization is an Aboriginal-designed and -controlled body committed to influencing and advancing the health and well-being of Aboriginal Peoples through knowledge-based strategies.
