Reports

This background paper presents an overview of suicide in Indigenous peoples in countries where there is a dominant White society. The countries identified for this background paper share similar colonial histories and all but Greenland have populations where the Indigenous population is significantly smaller in comparison to the non-Indigenous/mainstream population.

The countries reviewed for suicide rates were Australia, Aotearoa/New Zealand, Canada, the United States of America,Greenland, and Scandinavian countries of Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Russia. These are all countries where the Indigenous peoples have elevated suicide rates compared to the non-Indigenous/mainstream population (Pollock, Naicker,Loro, Mulay & Colman, 2018).
