CCCYA launches report on youth suicide in Canada
The Canadian Council of Child and Youth Advocates (CCCYA), of which the Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse is a member, has released a new study on youth suicide at its national conference in Winnipeg yesterday. In it they put forward three recommendations for the federal government:
- To develop and implement a fully resourced, national suicide prevention strategy for Canada with designated funding to the provinces and territories;
- To develop and implement a cross-jurisdictional data system and to compel provinces to mandatory report attempted and completed suicides;
- To work with Indigenous youth and leadership to develop plans that will reflect what is needed in each community.
- Translation of a letter sent to the Minister of Health and Social Services and the Minister Delegate for Health and Social Services on the Child and youth protection services in Nunavik
