Evidence-Base for Promoting Mental Wellness and Resilience to Address Suicide in Circumpolar Communities

This project builds on the outcomes and recommendations of the Nuuk Hope and Resilience seminar (2009) and enhances the evidence base to promote mental wellness in circumpolar communities. Two research teams assessed circumpolar approaches to mental wellness and the potential for adapting interventions to other regions. A workshop was held in Tromsø, Norway in May 2014 followed by a symposium in Iqaluit, Canada in March 2015 in order to provide a forum to present findings, transfer knowledge, foster collaboration, and showcase best practices.
