High aboriginal suicide rates prompt awareness walk

NDIAN BROOK: It takes around five hours to drive from Indian Brook to Eskasoni First Nation. One group will be embarking on the 250 km journey Sept. 10 – but they will do it on foot.

Chasity Meuse has walked across the country to spread awareness of suicide prevention in First Nations communities. For the past three years, she has served as a keynote speaker for the suicide prevention walk from Red Bank to Eel Ground First Nations in New Brunswick. This year, she felt compelled to start something in her own backyard, and so began the Medicine Trail Walk for Life.
