Indigenous mental health is a huge problem in Canada. Many indigenous people do not have the resources, money or access to proper help. Each year the suicide rates in the indigenous community keep getting higher and are much higher then that of the non- indigenous community. The suicide rate for First Nations male youth (age 15-24) is 126 per 100,000 compared to 24 per 100,000 for non-Indigenous male youth. For First Nations females, the suicide rate is 35 per 100,000 compared to 5 per 100,000 for non-Indigenous females. We need everyone to take action now and encourage the Canadian government to make indigenous mental health a priority.
