Call for Youth Advisory Committee members

Are you concerned about the alarming rates of suicide among First Nations, Inuit and Métis youth in Canada? Are you between the ages of 17 and 30 and have experience with suicide prevention? Do you feel like you have something to contribute to Aboriginal youth suicide prevention? If so, the Honouring Life Network (HLN) wants to hear from you!

A program of the National Aboriginal Health Organization (NAHO), the HLN is actively recruiting First Nations, Inuit and Métis youth between the ages of 17 to 30 to be a part of the HLN Youth Advisory Committee.

The primary purpose of this committee is to contribute your personal or professional experience with suicide and/or suicide prevention towards the ongoing and upcoming initiatives of the HLN. Though suicide is often a difficult subject to discuss, it is an important issue that has affected many First Nations, Inuit and Métis youth across Canada.

Your opinions, thoughts, ideas, and initiatives are important when developing new programs and resources in suicide prevention. Moreover, the HLN believes that you – the youth – are able to provide some of the best guidance and contributions towards suicide prevention for yourself and your peers.
