Little Cub: preventing suicide in indigenous children
Facilitated by the Centre for Suicide Prevention
Little Cub is a 1-day, discussion-based workshop examining suicide prevention in Indigenous children and communities.
The Little Cub Workshop draws heavily on storytelling and oral tradition. It begins by recognizing the unique precipitating factors of suicide in Indigenous communities and moves through to identifying risk and protective factors in children 12 years of age and younger. The workshop finishes by empowering participants with knowledge and tools to transfer the care of a child at risk of suicide to a community-based resource person.
