Government of Alberta’s response to the Child and Youth Advocate : toward a better tomorrow : addressing the challenge of aboriginal youth suicide

Description

In April 2016, Alberta's Child and Youth Advocate released an investigative review that examined the lives of seven Indigenous youth who died by suicide over an 18-month period between 2013 and 2014. All seven individuals were either receiving child intervention services when they passed away or had received services within two years of their deaths. The report made 12 recommendations for the Government of Alberta and the Ministries of Children’s Services, Health, and Education, as well as associated service delivery partners. This document provides the Government of Alberta’s response and the steps it is taking to address these recommendations.
