Reducing the Incidence of Suicide in Indigenous Groups - Strengths United through Networks (RISING SUN) is an initiative of the 2015-2017 US Arctic Council Chairmanship. RISING SUN has produced a number of useful tools, including an online toolkit on how to measure the impact and effectiveness of suicide prevention in circumpolar Indigenous communities.

On this page you can:

  • Read about how the Toolkit was developed using a community-based consensus building process across the circumpolar North. 
  • Learn how the Toolkit can be used for different audiences and target groups.
  • Access the Toolkit directly.

We would be happy to hear your experience using the Toolkit through this feedback form
