The two quotations that open this report – the first from the digital story of a young Iñupiaq woman from Alaska, the second from a digital story by two Greenlandic Inuit women – showcase the strength and creativity of youth in making meaning from their life experience. This knowledge can contribute to understanding and action for youth suicide prevention in circumpolar contexts. Project CREATeS – Circumpolar Resilience, Engagement and Action Through Story – is an initiative of the Sustainable Development Working Group of the Arctic Council. Project CREATeS aims to engage Arctic communities, particularly youth, in the suicide prevention and mental wellness efforts of the SDWG.
