RISING SUN – Reducing the Incidence of Suicide in Indigenous Groups – Strengths United through Networks Toolkit

The RISING SUN toolkit was the culmination of a community-based and consensus-building process to identify common outcomes and their measures for evaluating suicide prevention efforts across the circumpolar North.
It’s objective is to provide a web-based toolkit that facilitates the use of a common language for data sharing, assessments, and the interpretation of research findings related to suicide prevention in the Arctic region.
