Not all Native communities experience high suicide rates In communities where there is a strong sense of culture and community ownership, there are much lower rates of suicide and sometimes none at all Protective factors include: Self-government & land control Control over education & cultural activities Health services and command of police/fire services High levels of indigenous language use
