ore than 1 in 5 off-reserve aboriginal adults have contemplated suicide, StatsCan says


More than one in five aboriginal adults living off-reserve say they've contemplated suicide at some point in their lives, Statistics Canada reported Tuesday.

The prevalence of suicidal thoughts was higher among First Nations people living off-reserve, Métis and Inuit adults than among non-aboriginal adults, with the exception of Métis men, whose tendencies closely mirrored those of non-aboriginal men, suggests a Statistics Canada study based on the 2012 Aboriginal Peoples Survey and the 2012 Canadian Community Survey — Mental Health.
